The Electricity board may have a prescribed format of application, which has to be filled and submitted at their concerned office for claiming refund of security deposit amount. Please check with them first. Generally, the surrender application form contains the field for security deposit refund.

    The electricity company takes too many days to process the refund request. You will have to keep following up with them after submitting this letter. Thanks for the format sir.

  2. How much amount will be refunded? any idea?

    1. The refund amount should be the exactly the amount deposited by you as security deposit in the beginning. If you have not paid any due bills, they may deduct it from the deposit before refunding. The security deposit amount is generally given in all the electricity bills itself. Check it out.

  3. Sir plz reply me.
    Jaise Ram ka purana electric security 1200 jama tha usne flat shyam ko becha. Ab Shyam name change karane jaa raha hai. Shyam ko 7050 Rs lag raha hai.
    To kya isi 7050 me 1200 Rs adjust karke 6850 Rs dekar dono kaam ek saath ho sakta hai ya nahi. Yadi iska koi letter ho to plz dijiye bahut achha hota.
    Thanking u.
    Plz reply me sir/mam

    1. adjust toh nahi hoga shayad. phir bhi ek bar electricity board officer se baat karlo. iss case me Ram ko pehle apne 1200 security deposit ke refund ke liye apply karna padega. phir woh 1200 milne ke baad woh use Shyam ko de sakta. jisko ki Shyam aur 5850 mila ke , total 7050 de kar naya connection ke liye apply kar sakta he.

  4. Sir/mam mai bijli conection liya hai ab mujhe yad nahi hai ki mai cecurty mint kitana jama kiya hai.phir ek bar lagbhag ek sal pahle notice aya ki cecurty mony jama karawe. phir mai jama karya o bhi yad nahi. hai phir abhi notice aya hai ki 1602₹ present me jama karwe. Phir 824 bailenc dur rahega.
    Ab mai kaise pta karu ki total cecurty mony dena hai .aur mai kab kitna- kitna- jama kiya hu.

    1. Security Deposit amount kitna jama hai yeh tumhare last month electricity bill check karoge toh pata chal jayega. Bill ko achhese check karo dikh jayega. Agar bill me nahi likha hai toh electricity office me jahan bill payment karte ho wahan bhi puch sakte ho.

  5. How to get my deposit back ? We have ,deposited 15k form our pandal for navtari festival ,and v are not aware of the procedure to get the refund back

    1. Please visit the concerned electricity board office and submit the application for refund of security deposit. You will find the application form there.
