A. Dear Client,
The Electricity Board or other supply agency administers the installation of electric pols by charging a fixed rate of fee from the consumers. This does not come under the ambit of the Nagar Nigam. So, in this situation, you have to approach the concerned Electricity Board or other supply agency to know about the fee rate and seek clarification on the issue.
Hope it helps.
Thank you.
