Hi Sir,
The increase in the amount of the electricity bill has to be born by tanent it self. If increase in amount of electricity bill is not paid by him than a legal action can be taken against him.
kindly get in touch with us to know more and also provide us the copy of rent agreement.

This position will be cleared with the fact that who has been paying the Electricity bill for the past months. Whoever has been paying will continue to pay unless otherwise stated in the Agreement.
Prima face, the liability is on the Tenant since he/she has been using the Electricity.
