MP Woman Gets Rs 2.5 Lakh Electricity Bill For A Hut With Bulb & Table Fan

by Ankita Mohanty

In a bizarre incident, a 65-year-old house help got handed a hefty Rs 2.5 lakh electricity bill in Madhya Pradesh’s Guna. It’s important to mention that Rambai Prajapati lives in a modest hut that only has a bulb and table fan. Earlier, she used to get a bill of Rs 300 to 500 every month. However, due to the lockdown, the woman could not deposit the bill for two months and this time she received a bill of Rs 2.50 lakh.

Stunned after seeing the bill, Prajapati rushed to the electricity department’s office to get it rectified, but to no avail. She claims that she visits the office daily and waits under a tree outside the office but everyone ignores her.

“I earn my living by working as a maid in other’s houses. I have a bulb and a table fan in my house. My bill has come to Rs 2.5 lakhs. I have been coming to the electricity department for the last several days, but there is no one to listen,” Rambai mentioned in an interview.

She also claims to have reached out to public representatives and even the Guna collector, but the problem remains unsolved.
