Yes it is true, this man in Jharkhand who has a three room house with three fans, an equal number of tubelights and one television received a bill of Rs 3,800 crore towards electricity charges.
The electricity bill of Rs 38 billion of 3,800 crore was slapped on a Jamshedpur resident B R Guha. B R Guha was handed the non-payment of the bill by the Jharkhand Electricity Board, following which, electricity was disconnected from his home.
Speaking to ANI, Guha said, "It came as a surprise to us. We didn't anticipate this. We have a house of 3 rooms. We use three fans, three tubelights and a TV at times. How can we have such a huge bill?"
Reacting to the bill, Guha's daughter Ratna Biswas said, "My mother is a sugar patient and my father has pressure. It was only after our neighbors intervened that we were able to do anything."
A complaint has been lodged. Investigations into the same are on.
