Madurai: The Madras high court on Thursday allowed a petition filed by music director Harris Jayaraj challenging the levy of maximum demand charges and compensation towards low power factor by the Tangedco from March to July on a movie theatre leased by him. The petitioner also sought to quash the bills issued by Tangedco, to rework them and adjust the excess payment in the future bills and to collect only minimum charges till the lockdown is lifted for theatres.
The petitioner stated that he was the lessee of a cinema theatre named G V Studio City with five screens at Thanjavur district. The theatre is having a high-tension consumer connection. Due to Covid-19 lockdown, theatres across the state remained closed and the restrictions still continue. Since the theatres remain closed, there was virtually no service activities through the theatres, he said.
Jayaraj said that he was aggrieved by the levying of charges, though he had paid the bills. He further stated that the principal seat in an earlier order had ruled against the levy of demand charges and compensation by Tangedco on high-tension consumer connections.
