    I have tried to register for ECS bill payment. I did it. Unfortunately there was a mistake I have done. In the mandate form the effective date is 01-07-15 whereas i have put 02-07-15 as the validity date i.e. only one day it will be valid. I tried to correct it by reregistering. I am unsuccessful. How to get out of it?

  • arupchakraborty

    i want to purchase a.c please tell me the criteria

    • Abhishek Jain

      Hi Arup,
      There are several factors that one need to consider while buying AC:

      1) Tonnage of AC: Depends on several factors, but primarily on size of room, city where you live in, window sizes, people in the room. Oversized AC consumes more electricity, and undersized does not cool properly.

      2) Star Rating: Choice of BEE 5 star/inverter tech or a lower rating depends on your usage of AC. If your usage is more than 1000 hrs per year (with traiff more than Rs 5), it is better to go for higher efficiency models. Benefit of inverter tech is that it is a variable tonnage AC and as the tonnage requirement is different every month and every day, this AC auto adjusts to the needs and thus saves electricity.

      3) Brand: Some brands offer better reliability/technology and some have better service network. One has to factor in both. Once you have decided on star rating, the most efficient models from good brands can be selected.

      If you provide us with more details as in which city you are in, what is the size of your room, which floor they are on, is there any floor above it, are the walls exposed to sun, usage in hours per day and months per year, and approximate budget, then we can recommend you something.

      How to increase electric load for AC?

    • Abhishek Jain

      You will have to request your electricity distribution company (CESC in your case) to do the same.

    • Jyotiprasad Bhattacharya

      I want to purchase an A.C. please let me know the procedure regarding your part

    • Abhishek Jain

      Hello Mr Bhattacharya,

      Are you looking for a recommendation for AC or you want to buy AC from us? We do not sell ACs … we just provide recommendation based on a person’s setting, location, etc.
