The Tamil Nadu Electricity Regulatory Commission (TNERC) has stepped in to simplify the process, making it easier than ever to adjust your electricity usage from home to business, or anything in between.
Previously, changing your electricity plan (like from LT-IA to LT-V) meant getting a building completion certificate from the authorities. Talk about a major headache!.
TNERC heard your pleas and declared this requirement unnecessary for existing customers. You don't need to prove your house is built anymore, just that you live there.
TANGEDCO, the electricity company, needs to get with the program. They're obliged to follow TNERC's ruling and ditch the certificate hassle for good.
New connections still require the certificate, so if you're building a brand-new space, hold onto that document. But for everyone else, it's smooth sailing ahead.
Judgment Result: Power to the People!
TNERC's ruling is a clear win for consumers. The court order cited by TANGEDCO was deemed inapplicable to existing connections, making the process of changing plans quicker and easier than ever.
Empowers consumers: No more jumping through certificate hoops – simply request your desired plan and enjoy the convenience.
Simplifies the system: Eliminates unnecessary bureaucracy and paperwork, making life easier for everyone.
Upholds fairness: TNERC ensures everyone has equal access to flexible electricity options based on their needs.
