Jamshedpur (Jharkhand) [India], August 14 (ANI): A man in Jamshedpur was in for a shock when he received an electricity bill of Rs. 38 billion on Sunday. B.R. Guha was handed the non-payment of the bill by the Jharkhand Electricity Board, following which, electricity was disconnected from his home. Spealing to ANI on the same, Guha said, "It came as a surprise to us. We didn't anticipate this. We have a house of 3 rooms. We use three fans, three tubelights and a TV at times. How can we have such a huge bill?" Reacting to the bill, Guha's daughter Ratna Biswas said, "My mother is a sugar patient and my father has pressure. It was only after our neighbors intervened that we were able to do anything." A complaint has been lodged against the Board and matters are being looked into. (ANI)
