The process you need to Follow:

  1. In Hyderabad, eSeva service is very good. Even online service is there. I prefer eSeva. Please pay the current outstanding( current month bill). Still, the bill will be on the builder’s name. Collect the receipt from eSeva. Alternatively, you can get the same from the builder. (In the second case you are really lucky…:) )

  2. Hi,

    Thanks for this useful information. I applied for Title Transfer on Electricity Meter (in Sep 2015) and below is the list of paper work i had to submit (very minor change from what another contributor has listed; so i'll re-use the list here and add my comments)

    Latest list of documents
    1) Sale deed both side xerox with attestation
    2) Latest bill & payment receipt
    3) 1 (yes, they just took one) passport size photographs of new owner
    4) old owner sign. on application (this is a consent form from the old owner – available on net or provided free of cost at electricity office)
    5) Filled in complaint form (you will get this at the office or download) – this is a simple form where you have to mention your Service number, tick mark the 'Title Transfer' option and sign it
    5) 50/- at ERO office for domestic (ask for Rs. 50/- challan for title transfer – they will give you a challan that states Application Fee)
    6) Noc on Rs 10/- if new owner are joint (ie. more than one owner mentioned in the sale deed). Again one may download the format from internet / Telungana electricity board website
    7) Rs 100/- name change bond (format available in website)
    8) Latest EC copy (Encumberance Certificate – this is easily to get online. Search for "Telangana Encumberance Certificate" and you should be able to get it generated in minutes
    9) Up-to-date house tax receipt (I did not provide this, nor was asked. Mine is a new construction and i am yet to pay tax on it)
    10) ID proof

    I went to a notary for attestation but found they know the process of Title Transfer for Electricity, so i got NOC, Name Change Bond, bills/payment receipt copy attestation all done there – my work got easy. Also, i submitted only one set of document copy to electricity board – nothing in original except NOC and Name Change bond. I went to Mehdipatnam branch near Sarojini Devi Eye hospital and got it done. I did have to visit thrice (at the first visit, i learnt i had to provide the application after paying Rs. 50/-, the second time the operator was out sick and the third time, got it done).

    I have a question myself – at the time of this writing, the status of my application/complaint shows Complaint Rectified. I was not asked for photo over their webcam (or any finger print, etc.). What is the next step? The name shown is still the old owner's. Perhaps i may call up their customer service or visit the branch again.

  3. In 1747 Benjamin Franklin started to experiment with electricity and proposed the notion of positive and negative charge. He performed his famous kite experiment to prove that lightning was a form of electrical discharge in 1752. strømtest.no

  4. 1. Transfer Application Form (Southern Power Distribution Company of Telangana State Limited)
    2. No Objection cum consent letter (Ideally 1 & 2 from the builder or the previous owner of the property)
    3. Encumbrance Certificate on present owner's name -should appear/come as NIL
    4. copy of the sale deed of the property
    5. Indemnity Bond for Title Transfer (on Rs 100/- stamp paper)
    6. Photo copy of Electricity bill (last/current month) + payment receipt
    7. Identity Proof of the present owner
    8. 2 photographs
    9. Demand Draft for Rs 30/- issued in favor of TSSPDCL

    Signature and Attestation on all the copies by any Gazetted with seal.

    Submit all the documents at the designated customer service center/office
    (keep a copy for your future reference)

    That's all. The name change shall/would happen in the next 1-2 billing cycles.

    Good Luck and Hope this helps.

    **p.s total amount spend is about Rs 600/- and surely takes a bit of time for completion.
