Fraud done by Builder For Bescom Charges
Shaan (name changed on request), a resident of the complex at Budigere cross said the builder had charged each buyer ₹1.75 lakh for a connection from the Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (Bescom), but instead of providing a connection for each home, the builder took one commercial HT connection from Bescom and later installed private meters for the residents.
- BESCOM, BWSSB & legal charges (calculated on per sft rate) = Rs. 2,50,000/-
- GST on water, electricity & other services (18% on BESCOM, BWSSB & legal charges) = Rs. 45,000/-
- CGST (6% of taxable value) + SGST (6% of taxable value) = INR 4,80,000/- *
