Hi Indians, I am a resident of chennai. After moving to a different flat, we have faced 4 times in a span of 7 months, the EB meter was replaced fr the below reasons. 1. Stops running. 2. Runs too fast like chennai auto meters. 3. Stops running exclusively at x99 counters. I am not alone in this. My neighbour also faces similar problem. We have been standing at our EB office very often as a sincere citizen to get the Electricity meter replaced. When we made complaint to the EB office, th eline man says, they do know abt this problem abt faulty meters at x99 counters, fast calibrated meters which shows more for less consumption. But what to do? Ie the way, the meters are supplied to them from BIG companies like BHEL and others.... More over since the consumption pattern varies for summer (Mar to June) and during the rest of the season, its very less consumption because of AC's not being used. But the EB rule doesn't care abt it. It just averages the previous 2 bills and gives you an amount if the meter stops running. Typically you end up paying more for what you have not used. Would like to know how many of you have faced such situations and also how to determine whether the EB meter is running properly with/without Air conditioner on. When AC is switched on, the needle runs faster than our Olympian gold medalist P.T.Usha and during these times, it also breaks down.-- I have decided to switch over to a different flat if problem persists.... But would like to know am I alone in this EB meter race?
