No. It is not at all mandatory to apply through an Electrical Contractor. You may directly approach any of Torrent Power Customer Connect Centre and they will assist you in completing the necessary formalities.
However applications for new connection, load alteration, shifting etc would require a Test Report as per GERC supply code. Such test reports are issued by a government licensed electrical contractor certifying that your internal wiring is in order.
Installation Test Report is a certificate issued by the Licensed Electrical Contractor confirming that the installation wiring is as per specified standards.
A blank Installation Test Report is available free of cost at all our Plug Point. The same is available here.
You can get an additional meter for a different tariff on the same name. All you need to do is submit a Requisition Form for extension of load at any of our Plug Point.
