അദ്ധ്വാനിക്കാതെ അധികമായി പണം വന്നാല്, മനുഷ്യ൯ അവ൯ പോലും അറിയാതെ ചീത്തയാകുന്നു.

ഒരു മനുഷ്യ൯ എപ്പോഴാണു ചീത്തയാകുന്നത്?
അദ്ധ്വാനിക്കാതെ അധികമായി പണം അവന്റെ കൈയ്യില് വരുമ്പോള് കാലക്രമേണ അവന്റെ സ്വഭാവം, അവ൯ പോലും അറിയാതെ മാറുന്നു. ഇന്നു നമ്മുടെ സമൂഹത്തില് കാണുന്ന പല സംഭവങ്ങളും ഇതിനു ഉത്തമോദാഹരണങ്ങളാണ്. മതത്തിന്റെ പേരില് അനധികൃതമായി സമ്പാദിച്ച് കൂട്ടി കേസ്സില് പെട്ടു കൊണ്ടിരിക്കുന്ന പലരും ഒരു പക്ഷെ, ഒരു സമയത്തു നല്ലവരായിരുന്നിരിക്കാം.

Condition of Common Supply in HT Tariff with High Rise Building Apartments

As per KSEB Terms and Conditions of Supply, 2005, Clause 13(2)(b), "If common and essential loads in the building is 100 kVA and above, separate transformer with HT metering arrangement shall be installed exclusively for such loads".

Consider there are two buildings in the same premises. Let the buildings are having the common and essential loads of 70kVA each (So, total of 140kVA). The two buildings are physically segregated but comes under a single builder. So, they may approach with a single application (being the same premises and in future there may be a single residence association to manage) to Electrical Inspectorate and KSEB.
Consider the following two cases:-
Case 1:- Let both the buildings are fed from a single transformer. In this case, I am sure according to the above clause 13(2)(b), we can insist for another exclusive transformer for the common and essential loads, being above 100kVA.
Case 2:- If the individual buildings are fed from individual transformers? Let them fed through a common 11kV panel. Is it necessary to insist to have another exclusive transformer for the common and essential loads?, each being below 100kVA ( of the individual buildings)

The final solution I reached through discussion in Kerala Electrical Circuit [ ]
(a) if the common and essential loads are shared by both buildings and there is only one connection then H T connection may be insisted.
(b) Consider two independent transformers are fed from a common 11kV panel (1+2) and the common amenities of the two buildings are not at all shared and each of them comes around 70kVA (so the total >100kVA). In such as case, HT tariff common supply need not be insisted.

KSEB Cut Out Fuse - its location

Please refer to the quotes from IER-1956 below.:-
rule 58. Point of commencement of supply- The point of commencement of supply of energy to a consumer shall be deemed to be the point at the incoming terminal of the cut-outs installed by the consumer under rule 50.

Annexure VI . Part-1 - Clause(6) The main cut-outs or fuses shall be inserted and sealed by the licensee free of cost to the consumer.

Always it is advisable to provide the Cut Out Fuse before Energy Meter and got sealed by KSEB. It is applicable even in the case of Metering Panels of the Multistoried Building Apartments.
