Planning to purchase a pre-owned property? Make sure that the previous owner of that house has not left behind any electricity dues.

Planning to purchase a pre-owned property? Make sure that the previous owner of that house has not left behind any electricity dues. If there are any electricity bills due to be paid, the power distributor can force you to pay them or cut off supply in case of default. The Delhi High Court has given distribution companies full power in this regard. A special three-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice, Mr. Ajit Prakash Shah and constituted to decide on the contentious issue, said: "If there are electricity dues against the premises' previous owner who transfers it to a new owner, the new owner applying for a fresh electricity connection can be compelled by the distribution company to pay the arrears... and the distribution company can refuse to supply electricity to the premises on account of such non-payment."
