to Mr. A.A.JOSE BARODA (LEGAL ADVISER)
1. It does not require "darkness" or "daytime" or whatever, to "Keep Smiling". UNLESS OFF-THE-COURSE Mr. A.A.Jose has a static smile which requires Electricity power to "Keep Smiling". (pun intended)
2. Mr. Jose, further you will naturally find it difficult AND you won't be able to give a "clear opinion of such issues" SIMPLY because YOU have not read the query put by "Himanshu shukla" wherein he states that the SOCIETY "maintance charges is not paid to the society,now its acuumalated up rs 60,000".
a) NOTE : Here the society is not the "Electricity provider" AND neither the "society maintainence charges" here means the "electricity charges" AND neither the society can provide or charge for any electricity charges to a flat owner. Electricity is provided & charged by the Electric companies and not by the society.
b) FURTHER NOTE : Mr. Himanshu Shukla, is a L&L tenant and not the owner of the apartment, and neither he can own a electricity connection in his own name.
3. It is absolutely a legal nuisance & criminal intimidation to "disconnect electricity" by society members to force a resident to pay the "society maintainence charges", which is akin to "extortion".
QUESTION TO MR. JOSE :
a) Please cite any reason as to why the society people can disconnect electricity to recover society charges.
b) DID the society provide / supply electricity to the flat owner or L&L tenant. IF NO, then under which jurisdiction the society can disconnect "electricity supply" to the flat.
4. Supply of Water & Electricity is covered "as a public service" and is under the parameters of the "Essential Services Act", and it is a criminal offence, punishable by imprisonment, IF such disconnection of the Essential Services is done, by private persons, other than the competent authorities after following due procedures of law.
Mr. Jose, IF permitting, try to improve your face value, by smiling naturally, even in the darkness.
Keep Smiling .... Hemant Agarwal
