No it's liability to pay it it's necessary if you are taken your grandfather estate then no payment but if you are legal representative of your grandfather so it's your liability only on their property

Metred connection are billed till they are officially closed or surrendered. Therefore if you used it or not the minimum charges shall apply and the same stand payable. You should submit for closure of connections if you not using the electricity and water.
