    I don't know the procedure, but at least you may inquire with the nearby MSEB office. There is one just before the ParkStreet when going from PS.

    But one important thing is that, you should do it as soon as possible, coz for builders the per unit rate is charged as per Commercial rules (if he has not done the required procedure already) and thats almost double the Domestic per unit charge. Usually a builder does all these formalities as you get the flat possession, so you may also check with them first, even insist for it.

        Be it a ready possession, builder should do it for you as far as you purchased it directly from builder (not a resale one). So you should ask him first, but if he doesn't do it, you will have to bear the extra amount (if it comes at commercial rate, I'm not sure what need to be done to convert it to a domestic user).
        btw, have you got bill after using the electricity for a month of time? then how are the numbers?

            Dear RBagade,
            Hold on. You need to make a application along with your Agreement to Sale/ Sale Deed with Index II at the nearby MSEDCL office. Be assured that if it is your individual meter than its charged at domestic rate. It it's construction meter then only it's charged at higher rate. You can request your builder to get this job done for you.

              I too believe that the builder should have done this for you. And the builder should be able to tell which MSEB office you should contact. So you should raise the concern with your builder in the first place.

                    Re : Procedure to Change the Name on Electricity Bill

                    What the case for double transfer(resale case)?
                    Say there is a person A who bought it from builder, currently bill is in his name.
                    Then person B bought from person A but didn't transferred name.
                    Now person C bought from person B and wants to get his name on the bill ?
