    hah! If your neighbors still have the old fashioned mechanical electric-meter having dials to note the reading, then what the electrician did was 'slow' it. They make use of a strong super magnet and the readings on the meter tend to get very slow(or even completely stop) Obviously you wouldn't want it to completely stop. The electric company subtracts the reading of the previous month from the meter and generates the bill of the current month. To-do or not-to-do the same is your call. Why would you want to file a case? against whom? Electric meter are very simple instruments that just do what they are meant to do and are very efficient. If you get a high bill, you need to see things inside your home and not outside it.

    Edit:
    How is that supposed to make sense? Please tell it was a mistake.

    @satyamy: my P4 2.8GHz with D101GGC MB, 256MB RAM, 40GB HDD, TV tuner card consumes ~100 watt for CPU and ~50W for Monitor. your CPU will consume lesser than it (say 75W). total ~125W. This means running 8Hours will consume one unit. check your per unit rates from your electricity bill :)

    @Sourabh: does anybody still have old mechanical energy meters, AFAIK these are being replaced by electrinic meters throughout the country

    They are being replaced, but I don;t think they have been discontinued. To the best I know, for new connections and replacements - you get electronic ones now. Many still use the old meters however.

    200/- for 2months? it is very cheap. there may be various reasons for this:

    1. energy saving
    2. concession
    3. theft
    4. intentional errors in meter readings / calculations

    first be confirmed how they are getting such low bills, then you can complaint.

    I am using p4(3.00 Mhz) PC together with Samsung 17" monitor and 5.1 1000 watt speakers for about five hours per day. My electricity bill comes to about Rs.280/-.
    LOLS I don't have any setting with the electricity guys.

    ^ it depends on electricity chages of your state. like in Himachal per unit rates are ~Rs1.0 per unit. in Punjab it is ~Rs3.0 per unit. so assuming 5 hours PC use = 1unit (if PC load is 200W),
    running PC 5Hours per day = 30 Rs in Himachal
    running PC 5Hours per day = 90 Rs in Punjab

    (monthly charges for PC only leaving rental charges)
