The Delhi High Court on Friday directed authorities to treat as representation, a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) challenging the method adopted by electricity companies for calculating the cumulative electricity consumption charges during the 4 to 5 month period of lockdown amidst the outbreak of the deadly COVID-19.

“All persons are not poor, some are having malls etc, why are you worrying about their bills,” said a division bench of the High Court presided by Chief Justice D.N. Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan while also noting that the Delhi Electricity Regularity Commission (DERC) has not been made a party in the plea.
