In what could be said as a bizarre incident, Abdul Basit, a man from Uttar Pradesh’s Kannaju received a shock of his life after seeing the electricity bill. Though it is common for spikes in electricity bills in India, Abdul Basit was definitely not expecting a bill (over Rs 23 crores) for just four months.
The amount charged was Rs 23,67,71,524 for a meager 178 units of electricity. Basit reportedly said, “It seems like I’ve received the entire bill of Uttar Pradesh. Even if I earn money for my entire life, I’ll still be unable to pay this exorbitant amount.”
According to an engineer, the bill was an anomaly and that it will be rectified soon.
