Change over to TATA Power and save every month.

3 min read

Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) has passed an interim order on 15th October 2009, permitting users of Reliance Energy to switch over to TATA Power. This has come as a boon to millions of consumers who have been complaining of high tariff charged by Reliance Energy.

To avail of this facility, a consumer has to fill in a form and submit it to TATA Power along with photocopies of address proof, latest paid bill of Reliance Energy and cheque of deposit amount + Rs 50 connection charges. The application form can be downloaded from TATA Power website . Though the form appears very complicated, you need not fill in all the details related to connected load if your Reliance Energy mentions the same. The TATA Power website also has details about how to calculate the deposit (Rs 200 x Connected load in KWh) e.g., if your connected KWh load is 17, then the deposit amount would be Rs 3,400 and the cheque amount payable to TATA Power would be RS 3,450. You can also pay ad hoc deposit of approximate one month’s electricity bill.

You have the option to retain your existing meter or switching over to TATA Power meter. The meter would be provided free of cost.

Please note that TATA Power has not appointed any agents for switchover, For consumers staying in Co-op Housing Societies, individual members can switchover independently and no NOC or permission is required from the Society. In case you require any further information, you can visit the TATA Power website or contact me at raviobhan@gmail.com

    You can call up Tata power call cnetre and they will direct/guide you how to go about doing the needful. As per the Call centre people its a simple process but it can take upto a month for the switch over from R-Infra to tata

    I would like to know, what happens to the Deposit Money paid to R-Infra on changeover to Tata Power and
    whether changeover from Tata Power to R-Infra is possible in future when you are not satisfied with the services of Tata Power.

    Yes, reliance is a bit costlier than tata. One more company in the same field has achieved a lot. Their  Power Cable  is really very helpful. For more details visit their website.
