Dear Adv Deshmukh
We got possession of our Flat in Khopoli from a small builder but the light meter is not
installed in our Flat.
Builder while giving possession gave us temporary electricity connection from his own meter
which he took
when building was under construction. Now he got all the money and not listening to our
since 3 months we are using his light connection from a wire pulled by himself and given in
our flat. He is not asking money for light but we think this is illegal. We are also afraid
MSEB will fine us. Please advise. Thanks

Your builder is under clear violation of MOFA as well as The Consumer Protection Act
1986. Its deficiency in services. You need to file Consumer Complaint in District Consumer
Forum (at Alibag) against the builder within a period of 2 year from the date of taking the
possession of your Flat, else it will get time-barred.
