Jharkhand - Rs. 55 Crore Power Bill Leaves This Family in Shock

Hits smaller text tool iconmedium text tool iconlarger text tool icon

When Krishna Prasad returned to his home in Ranchi from a wedding few days ago, he was in for a shock. A whopping Rs. 55 crore monthly electricity bill had been delivered to his house.

"You know my mother could have died because of this. I will take these people to court," said an infuriated Mr Prasad whose 55-year-old mother, shaken by the astronomical bill, had to be taken to a doctor.

The family of five stays in a modest, two-bedroom house in Kadru area in Ranchi and does not even use an air conditioner despite the sweltering heat. Most parts of the city face acute power cuts during summers and this year is no different, with outages extending to about 7 -8 hours every day.

The Jharkhand electricity Board has suspended two of its employees, and says the bill could have been a result of a clerical error. The entire work of delivering power bills has been outsourced to a private entity, and officials say they are investigating the incident.
