Electricity is getting costlier day by day. It seems we are importing it from some other planet. Yes, I am not joking as the recent incident proves my point. A man from Jamshedpur has received an electricity bill of Rs. 3800 crores.

Electricity was disconnected from his home as he was handed the non-payment of the bill by the Jharkhand Electricity Board.
The man named, BR Guha was in an absolute shock after this incident. Speaking to the ANI, which is reported by India Times, he 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 tube-lights, and a TV at times. How can we have such a huge bill?”
He further added: “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.”
