Not only common people, but now Bollywood celebs have raised their concern after receiving their electricity bills. Actors like Taapsee Pannu and Renuka Shahane are among some of the Bollywood celebrities who received inflated bills.
Recently Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu took to her Twitter handle to raise concern over the unbelievable surge of her electricity bill.
Along with the screenshot of her electricity bill invoice from April to June, Taapsee questioned how she was presupposed to make sense of the bounce from Rs 3,000-4000 within the first two months to Rs 36,000 within the present month.
“Three months of lockdown and I wonder what appliance(s) I have newly used or bought in the apartment only last month to have such an insane rise in my electricity bill. @Adani_Elec_Mum what kind of power are you charging us for?” the Thappad actor wrote on Twitter.
In one of her other tweet, Taapsee Pannu stated that she acquired an invoice of Rs 8,640 for an condominium, which isn’t in use.
“And this one is for an apartment where no one stays and it’s only visited once in a week for cleaning purpose @Adani_Elec_Mum. I am now worried if someone is actually using the apartment without our knowledge and you have helped us uncover the reality,” the actor tweeted.
After Taapsee, ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun’ actor Renuka Shahane also complained about her shocking electricity bill that she received.
She tweeted: “Dear @Adani_Elec_Mum I got a bill of Rs5510/= on the 9th of May while in June I got a bill of Rs 29,700 combining May and June where you’ve charged me Rs 18, 080 for the month of May. How did Rs.5510/= become Rs.18080/?”
A fan suggested Shahane that she should take a picture of the meter every month to protect herself from the ‘crazy loot’, agreeing to which the actress wrote, “Yes you are right” [sic].
Apart from Bollywood celebrities, many common people are also complaining about the same issue. However the twitter handle of Adani Electricity is replying to its consumer with a message; “Regret for the inconvenience caused. Kindly click DM us your account no. and.
