Mysuru, March 28:- Mysuru District Consumer Forum (MDCF) has instructed Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) to pay a compensation of Rs 1,500 to an aggrieved customer. This is for giving an additional water bill of 70 paise for no fault of the customer.
Satish, a resident of Ramakrishna Nagar ‘H’ block, had registered a complaint at the consumer forum in June 2018. He had received a water bill of Rs 340.30 for the month of June. Satish had paid Rs 340.
In July, he received a bill of Rs 341. The MCC had charged 70 paise more because Satish had kept 30 paise pending. In his complaint, Satish said he would not pay the additional money.
MCC accepted its mistake and said it happened due to a technical error. (MR/KS)
