Billing of electricity from landlord to tenant

What is the right and legal way for a landlord to bill electricity charges to a tenant.

Many Landlords charge arbitrary per unit rate. Some landlords charging as high as 9-10 rs/unit

Is it legal if Ramesh Guptas bill is paid by Rajiv Mehra or should the landlord be taking their bill creating a new invoice and levy gst of 18% to the bill they have received.

Whats the right way? Is there a cap on what rate they can bill at? more

A good and valid question.
Best would be to install separate meters. more  
Sub meter is normally installed and average rate of bill has to be paid by the tenant. If possible a separate connection can be applied for each floor. this will be fair for the landlord as well as for tenant. With the use of heating and cooling appliances the electric bill goes to higher slabs with no discounts or subsidiaries. This at times can be bone of contention between the parties. Such things can be best resolved while taking house on rent or while renewing the contract. more  
Normally one connection is provided for one address. There are fixed one time and then regular charges for each direct connection. So have a sub Meter and pay proportionally your consumption over total consumption times total bill more  
As mentioned earlier, the acceptable & fair method is to have a Sub Meter assigned to the designated space on Rent & the consumption as per the Meter reading is paid for.

The question of Slab: That is something to be decided before hand; In case the Landlord is a reasonable man he shall charge rationally, else he shall bill you at the highest Slab. Its best to discuss & reach an agreement. I don't think Rs 9-10/unit is being charged by any of the Discoms in any Delhi. more  
Separate meters/electricity connection will give exact bill.
Land lord charges highest slab with some fixed charges. more
