However within hours, Adani Electricity Mumbai Limited extended a clarification on the issue. IANS quoted a spokesperson of Adani Electricity Mumbai Limited (AEML), who have faced complaints by several consumers including Taapsee saying “We have re-started physical meter reading which was temporarily halted since March because of Covid-19. Bills were generated on the lower side, being an average of preceding three months, that is, December, January and February, which are winter months. Actual consumption in the months of April, May and June is comparatively higher due to seasonal impact (summer) and increased usage (advent of Lockdown/WfH).

The spokesperson added: “The bill amount for the past period shall be accounted as per Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) guidelines. The consumers will start receiving the bills based on their actual consumption with appropriate tariff slab benefits,”

On Taapsee’s claims, the AEML spokesperson said, “Upon receipt of the complaint, we have verified the meter reading and found to be correct.”
