What is Amended Bill?

An Amended Bill is essentially a corrected bill that is sent to the customer post making necessary changes by comparing the previously recorded meter reading with the presently captured meter reading, calculating the bill amount as the difference of two actual readings.

When is an Amended Bill sent to the customer?

An Amended Bill is a corrected bill which is sent once the correct meter reading is obtained and necessary changes are made by comparing the previously recorded reading with the presently captured meter reading. The bill is then calculated as the difference of two actual readings, ensuring accurate billing.

What is CAB (Consolidated Amendment Bill)?

A Consolidated Amended Bill is an amendment procedure where units billed at different slabs for various successive months are consolidated and spread over the said months by applying slab rates.

What is Pro-cab (Proactive CAB)?

If readings are estimated in the earlier month and if actual reading is obtained in the current month, a consolidated amendment bill is raised. Based on the current actual reading earlier units are prorated, and readings get revised to adjust slab benefit. This means that the total actual consumption is evenly spread across the estimation period, so that all the consumption is not recorded in one bill, hitting the highest consumption slab and overall higher cost to the user.

How can I identify that the subsequent bill is based on revised units?

You can identify a consolidated amendment bill by checking the important message box on the bill. The message will state that the bill is based on the actual meter reading, and your earlier estimated bill has been revised to give slab benefits. The differential amount will be reflected in the revised bill. You can visit for a better understanding of your electricity bill.

What message gets printed in the bill if the reading is estimated?

If you get an Estimated Bill, you will see this message printed on the bill, Since we could not take the meter reading for the current month, the consumption has been estimated. Your bill shall be amended upon the availability of meter reading in the subsequent month.

Your meter reading is mentioned on your bill for your reference. If you feel there is any discrepancy, please call our toll-free number 19122 for a quick resolution. You can also write to us at

Why does a bill say "Meters could not be read; Reading Developed"?

When the actual meter reading is not feasible, your bill may be based on estimated consumption. Here are the details of how this estimation works and what happens when the actual reading is taken-

If the meter reading couldn't be taken due to reasons like lock or no access to meter cabin, an estimated bill is generated.

The estimation is based on the higher value between the average consumption of the previous 3 months or the consumption of the same month last year.

Once the actual meter reading is obtained, adjustments are made, and any necessary debit or credit is reflected in the subsequent bill.

What message gets printed on the periodic bill if the units are prorated?

For Adani electricity’s residential consumers, prorated slab details are printed on the reverse side of the bill, below the Tariff structure.

How does Adani Electricity billing system work?

Once your meter is connected, you will be given a Customer Account Number based on where you live and nearby Customer Care center. This number determines your Cycle Number and Book Number.

Every month, our Meter Readers will record the readings based on your Cycle Number. These readings are then entered into our billing system, which automatically calculates your bill amount.

You have the option to receive your bill in different ways: you can get it online via email or through our mobile application, or we can print and send it to your billing address. You can choose any or all of these options. For more details, please visit know your bill.

I found that my bills are not calculated as per standard slabs shown in tariff structure of the bill. Why this change has been made?

As per Supply code Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) including Power Quality Regulations 2021, issued by MERC, billing shall be on monthly basis, using the number of days in the calendar month to determine consumption slabs. Hence the units are prorated to adjust the appropriate slab benefits.

I am having residential connection, how will the bills be prorated?

In order to adjust appropriate slabs, units are prorated based on calendar month days. For September month, base days would be 30 days (as per calendar month days) but if actual billing days are different from the base days – slabs would be adjusted accordingly. So that customer would get appropriate slab benefits. Refer to following example:

Units slabs Calculation method example,

Will there be any variation in bill days?

As per supply code guidelines – Utility has to take readings for periodic bills on monthly basis with an exception of (+ /- 3 days). Adani electricity ensures that readings are taken as per defined schedule.

Seasonal Variations - An unusual cold or warm weather can significantly alter your electricity use.

New electric appliances usage - If you have recently installed a new major electric appliance - such as air conditioner, refrigerator, washing machine or computer - your usage of electricity may increase.

Defective Electrical appliances - Defective appliances such as air conditioner, refrigerator, washing machine and geyser need to be repaired immediately as they consume more energy than normal.

More people in the house - More people in the house leads to more energy consumption and so a higher bill amount.

Changes in Lifestyle - The lifestyle is influenced by different work shifts, a new baby, illness, retirement, etc. These in turn affect various factors such as the amount of time spent at home, the number of times the door is opened/closed, the setting on the thermostat, time spent in watching TV, lights used, and number of showers, etc. All these result into higher amount of electricity consumption.

What is Cross Subsidy?

Electricity generation, distribution, and supply have associated costs known as "Cost of Supply." High-end consumers, such as malls, hotels, industries, etc., are usually charged a premium over the cost of supply, which is used to provide a discount over cost of supply to low end consumer . This is called Cross-Subsidisation.

In Adani Electricity's distribution area how many consumers are cross subsidised consumers?

Adani Electricity has a consumer base of approximately 3 million consumers, out of which around 71% are cross-subsidised, primarily residential consumers with consumption below 300 units. The remaining 39% are cross-subsidising consumers.

Does Adani Electricity get any subsidy from the Central and/or the State Government towards cross subsidy?

No. Adani Electricity does not get any subsidy from either of the Governments.

Why the cross subsidy is important in parallel licenses regime?

The consumers are allowed to switchover in the parallel license regime. In case the high end consumer desires to switch over to another licensee in the same area, then it would disturb the cross subsidy quantum; which may put burden on the cross subsidized class. As a result, their tariff may unwarrantedly go up.

Does Electricity Act 2003 provide for cross subsidy surcharge?

Yes. Section 42 of the Electricity Act 2003 speaks about the surcharge.

What Steps has Adani Electricity taken to minimise the FAC being levied?

Adani Electricity's generating plant in Dahanu benefits from domestic coal linkages, reducing dependency on imported coal and minimizing the impact of fluctuating prices. Additionally, we have entered into a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for 700 MW Hybrid power (solar + non-solar), with power already being supplied. To address increasing prices in the short-term market, we have also entered into Medium-Term Power Purchase agreements. Furthermore, we are in the process of bidding for 1,500 MW power, aiming to reduce dependency on the volatile short-term market and mitigate the impact of Fuel Adjustment Charges (FAC).

What is FAC or Fuel Adjustment Charge? And how is it calculated?

FAC stands for Fuel Adjustment Cost. At the time of tariff approval, an average power purchase is worked out and approved by MERC, which forms the basis of retail tariff. If, during the course of the year, the actual power purchase cost varies above or below the approved value, the difference is recovered or refunded to consumers in the form of Fuel Adjustment Charges.

Who approves the Fuel Adjustment Charges?

The Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) approves the FAC based on the submission of the Distribtuion licensees, as per the provisiosn of MYT Regulations; Guidelines issued by MERC from time to time and the Tariff Orders issued by MERC from time to time. The Distribution licensees levy/ refund FAC basis the Order issued by MERC.

What will be the impact of FAC on the bill amount?
