If your mother declared you as her "nominee" in her declaration form, you should definitely be getting those benifits from  KPTCL, but you cannot claim interest  and compensation for the delay caused and hence it can be treated as an "administrative delay" while processing your application. It is better to made a "REMINDER" to the officials of KPTCL.
