TNEB — Reading Not taken for long

I am residing in Puzhuthivakkam Municipality. My home comes under the Madipakkam TNEB control. When They have seperated the Puzhuthivakkam Connections from Madipakkam area my service number changed. But my area still retained under Madipakkam Service Area.

1. First of all they come to my area for reading as they wish, they have taken reading for my house only three times in last one year.
2. Even If they take the reading for my house, since my connection number belongs to a different service area they don't enter the reading.
3. When ever I go for the payment,...

Respected sir,

We people who are living in choolaimedu, abdullah street are extremely fed up with the very low voltage power supply in our area. We have complained several times even directly to the A.E, but there is no response. Actually a transformer was sanctioned in our area about six months ago, but still there is no sign of it. The higher officials in TNEB have collected bribe fro the mansion owners in abdullah street and hence are not caring about our problem. The transformer was sanctioned to be built near the mansion, but the mansion owners somehow bribed the TNEB officials,...

TNEB — procedure for reconnection after 2yrs


Due to personal reasons, I was unable to pay my electricity charges for 2yrs (the house was locked too for 2yrs). As per procedure, my connection was disconnected. Now, I'm want my connection back. When we went to submit the appl for reconnection, they said that we need to pay a sum of Rs.35000/- as they can't give us the connection back, and only new connection can be given. How far is this true ? Has anybody gone thru this process ?? Kindly explain.

Thank you

TNEB — New way of looting people.

The Tamilnadu Electricity Board has found a new method of looting people.The power factor way.If your consumption is below the quota they fine you miserably.It means that if you do not use the quantity of power supplied you will be fines.On the other hand the electricity board is cutting power for 8 hours everyday.How is one supposed to utilise full power if they are not supplied with it.I request people not to come to Tamilnadu and start any industry .You will be looted.The people of the board are thugs and most of them ask for bribes upto Rs.50000/- wonly aaa...

Tamilnadu Electricity Board — Irresponsibility of Cash Collection officials

 Balamurugan Muthukrishnan
During Jul'08, I had been to the E.B office of Chitlappakkam, Chennai -64 to make the payment of the current month's electricity bill. When I went there, the officials said that the Meter Readings were not updated in their Databases. Hence, they asked me to handover the EB Reading Card and the Money (INR 472) so that they can credit into my account as the last date of payment was nearing. I did the same and I approached the EB office ore than thrice to collect my EB Reading Card. But, the person to whom I had handed over the Card and the Money wasn't there all the time. So, collected...

we are residing in PALLIKARANAI CHENNAI-600 100.
when we approached the EB office at MEDAVAKAM to pay the electricity bill, they are not accepting it. The reason given by them is that the bill is not updated in the computer. To update the bill we had to stand for more than 4 hours in the queue, even then they did not updated the bill. Hence we are unable to pay the bill even today 10-DEC-2008.
Is it necessary for a consumer to stand in one queue for updating and in another queue for paying the bill?
This is the working condition of MEDAVAKKAM TNEB.
