Advocate office does not come under commercial activity. You can tell him that you will pay the charges under domestic category only.

Very well explained and advised by experts, I fully agree with them. Earlier (till 2019) in Delhi electricity billing of Lawyer's office was being done as commercial, which is "out" of the ambit of commercial activity after lot of litigation.
Generally same laws apply through out the territory of India. If you are being charged on commercial rate challenge and contest it.
