Have you any tenancy agreement? If yes then read the terms and conditions of the said agreement. If no agreement then collect the consumer number from the said electricity bill and search the bill amount from apdcl website or from the electricity board. Asked the landlord to show the bill amount and collect a copy in written then consult with a lawyer.
