All State Electricity Boards are empowered to collect security deposit from their consumers, according to the condition of supply. Security Deposit is necessary because all consumer pay their bill after consumption of electricity. After receiving bill for their consumption in previous month they pay it. To pay the bill, a period of 10 to 15 days is also given. If any consumer does not pay the bill, then after serving him a notice and after giving a period of 15 days to make the payment, his supply can be cut off. Therefore, for about 2 months, a non – paying consumer can use electricity. Security deposit equal to electricity consumption of one month is collected from every monthly billed domestic consumer to avoid losses in such cases. As per the duration of the billing, this period may vary. MSEDCL has revised his tariff recently.
