Apropos to communication in conventional computer network or in electronics, in electrical field, the smart grid is the approach to transfer the electricity through distribution of network. It not only improves the security, reliability of electric system but also the communication of it too. Recently J Hur in IEEE Tran. on Smart Grid proposed an approach to provide an efficient and secure scheme in smart grid using attribute based analogy. The author claim that the proposed scheme is also provide the receiver anonymity which is one of the crucial feature of smart grid. However, in this paper, we claim that the scheme presented by Hur, fails to provide receiver anonymity as well as it is susceptible to the key escrow attack.
