      Hello mr Gupta,

      Bijli Bachao website does not belong to CESC and we have no connecting with CESC as well. This page was created to help consumers. Would suggest you to lodge a complaint with CESC customer grievance cell.

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

    • Abhishek Jain says:

      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.

        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.

    hello,I am Tridibeswar Das,having consumer no 63078089019,I am thankful to cesc for providing constant support 24×7.I have received bill for the month of February,2015 on 17.3.2015.The bill amount to be paid was Rs880 for consumption of 130.units.whereas, I do not mind to pay. I humbly submit that in the month of January and february’2015, I was on tour for about 10 days, thus consumption of 130 units, appears to be on the higher side, thus I will urge upon you to kindly re check the reading once.
    Thanking You, Yours faithfully,
    Tridibeswar Das.

      Hello Mr Das,

      Bijli Bachao is an independent entity having no connecting with CESC. This page has been created just to help consumers find online bill payment link to CESC. I would suggest that you contact the customer grievance cell at CESC. I am sorry but we at Bijli Bachao will not be able to help you much with this.
