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.
