Following several complaints of huge amount of electricity bills, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on June 30 said the Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) has asked power companies to look into the complaints.

Maharashtra CM tweeted,"Taking stock of the rising number of consumer complaints related to exorbitant electricity bills, Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) has directed power companies to show transparency in its billing procedures and redress the consumer complaints immediately."

Many people living in Mumbai have received bills that are eight times the normal bills expected during summers. 

Actors Taapsee Pannu, Renuka Shahane and comedian Vir Das had also tweeted about their inflated electricity bills.

MERC has said power supply should not be disconnected till a consumer's complaint is redressed. Consumers have been given the option of paying the amount in EMIs.
