The electricity consumers of KSEB can resolve their disputes and grievances by moving in 3 stages:

1. Make a complaint to the concerned officers of KSE Board and ask for a judicious decision

2. Make a complaint to the Consumer Grievance Redressal Forum (CGRF) and present their cases during the hearing

3. Make an appeal representation to the State Electricity Ombudsman and present their case during the hearing

All of these steps are absolutely free. No stamp paper, no revenue stamp, etc. Advocates are not compulsory. KSE Board can not move appeal/representation against the orders of CGRF to the Ombudsman. The Electricity Act 2003 as well as Regulations provide for appeals/representations against the orders of CGRF by the CONSUMERS only. The orders of the State Electricity Ombudsman shall be final. KSEB has to comply with the orders of the Ombudsman.
