A number of Bollywood celebrities seemed to have had the time to look at their electricity bills this weekend. From Tapsee Pannu to Renuka Shahane, many pointed out and hopped into the debate that has been raging in Mumbai and adjoining districts about people receiving unbelievable electricity bills for this month.

Bollywood actor Tapsee Pannu took to Twitter and posted a photo of her June bill which was a huge amount of Rs 36,000. Along with it, she posted photos of two other bills that she had received for April and May which were Rs 4,390 and Rs 3,850 respectively. She captioned the post saying, “3 months of lockdown and I wonder what appliance(s) I have newly used or bought in the apartment only last month to have such an insane rise in my electricity bill. @Adani_Elec_Mum what kind of POWER r u charging us for?”

Similarly, actor Renuka Shahane said in a tweet, “Dear @Adani_Elec_Mum I got a bill of Rs 5,510 on the 9th of May while in June I got a bill of Rs 29,700 combining May & June where you’ve charged me Rs 18,080 for the month of May. How did Rs 5,510 become Rs 18,080 ?” Shahane posted a photo of her bill as well.

Earlier, stand-up comedian Vir Das also took to Twitter and said, “Anyone else in Mumbai gets an electricity bill that is triple what they usually pay?.” Along with this, Tushar Gandhi too had tweeted saying, “On an average, my electricity bill is never more than Rs 3,500 this month they have sent me a bill for Rs 13,580 did I forget to switch something off?”

Similarly, many people lashed out and have been raising their voices against exorbitant power bills.

Clarifying on the issue of high bills, Adani Power said, “We have re-started physical meter reading which was temporarily halted since March because of Covid-19. Bills were generated on the lower side being an average of preceding three months i.e. Dec, Jan & Feb, which are winter months. Actual consumption in the months of Apr, May & June is comparatively higher due to seasonal impact (summer) and increased usage (the advent of lockdown/work from home). Now the consumers will start receiving the bills based on their actual consumption with appropriate tariff slab benefits. The bill amount for the past period shall be accounted for as per MERC guidelines.”

Meanwhile, State Energy Minister Nitin Raut while referring to the 2.30 crore electricity consumers of MSEDCL said, “There is no cheating. In fact, MSEDCL too has suffered a loss of approximately 3,500 in absence of physical reading. People can check their bills online and avail to pay in installments. They don’t have to pay in a lump sum. We will not cut the power supply.”
