#Sample 1 (Letter to change defective electricity meter)


Assistant Electrical Engineer,

Power supply sub division,

City, State name.

Subject: Regarding replacement of defective electricity meter.


It is to inform you that in my house last year, a meter was installed during the electricity connection, which serial no. is 12345. For the last two months, this meter is not displaying power consumption and its light does not work. People who came to read the meter said that the meter is malfunctioning.

If this matter was told to the concerned JE many times, he said that the meter will be changed, but it has not been resolved yet. This defective meter needs to be changed so that meter readings can be taken.

Therefore, you are requested to take action from your level and please arrange to install another meter.

Thanking you.

Yours faithfully,

#Sample 2 (Complaint of excess electricity bill)


Executive Electrical Engineer,

Power supply division,

City, State.

Subject: Regarding excess electricity bill.


Through this letter you have to inform that I am getting very high electricity bill for last 2 months which is about Rs. 20000 is more. It appears that there has been an unexpected increase in the bill, because I know that our electricity consumption is not so high. All our previous bills ranged between Rs 1000 to 1500.

So I request you to kindly look into the matter seriously and send your person to check if someone is stealing electricity from our meter or the meter is faulty. Please give me the reason why I am getting such a excess bill.

Thanking you.

Yours faithfully,

#Sample 3 (Complaint of incorrect power meter)


Assistant Electrical Engineer,

Power supply sub division,

City, State.

Subject: Regarding installation of the wrong electricity meter.


You have to inform that in my village, during the electricity connection last year, electricity meter had been installed. The meter installer contacted JE and told that in a few days, the consumer no. will alloted. Later, the people who came to take the meter reading said that the meter is in the name of someone else (of BPL quota) and they did not take the reading.

The person who installed the meter, said that the meter will be changed, but even after a year has not yet been resolved. The mess of installing such wrong meters happened in 5-6 houses in my village and some people have been charged of meter cost without any meter installation in their houses. It is possible that this work has been done unofficially.

Therefore, you are requested to check the matter at your level and take action against the culprits and please get the appropriate meter installed.
