Electricity charges before possession of my flat
I purchased a flat in bangalore in Jun 2017 and I am still waiting for the possession for my flat. However, there are few owners who have already got possession and started living in the premises.
I've been asked by my developer to pay the electricity bill since the electricity meter was installed and applied as a permament connection on behalf of individual apartment post the receipt of the OC for the building.
Therefore, my question is, is this something that I am liable to pay given that I still haven't registered the unit on my name or got possession of the same.

Thank you for the responses, I had this doubt already and now that you've cleared this, I went back to the builder with the same reply. However, this is what they are saying now.
"We would like to inform you that, we have applied permanent connection on behalf of individual apartment post receipt of OC, which is a parallel process with BESCOM facilitate to get the permanent connection.
There is a minimum charge payable to BESCOM from the date of RR number generated for the said apartment, minimum applicable electricity charges payable by respective purchaser directly to BESCOM from the time RR number generated date."
OC was obtained for the whole building but my flat isn't registered or the sale deed has not been executed. Therefore, am I still liable to pay for this?
