Generate your electricity bill and avoid paying a Fortune

With many DISCOMs, Distribution Companies, suspending manual meter readings during the COVID-19 and not getting back in full swing post-pandemic, staying aware of your electricity usage has become important. Further, if you don’t receive regular electricity bill, then you could be hit with a high lump sum payment once the bill arrives later. At Bharat Smart Services, we understand the stress of unexpected utility bills. Thus, we developed an AI-powered app to make self-meter reading easy.

The Bharat Smart Services app empowers consumers to monitor their electricity meters from home. By tracking usage in real time and submitting regular readings, you can ensure accurate billing and avoid future bill shocks. This Independence Day, we have achieved the milestone of  10 million meter readings per month using our AI-powered Meter Reading Platform.

How Does Meter Reading Work?

Your electricity meter records cumulative consumption since its installation. Every month, the DISCOM reads the current reading and subtracts the previous reading to determine usage. Then, this difference in figures is used to generate your bill based on applicable tariff slabs.

While some areas have smart meters that transmit data digitally, most of India still relies on manual readings. This involves a DISCOM representative visiting homes each month. With such a large population and irregular visits of DISCOM representatives post-pandemic, taking readings yourself is the best way to avoid estimated or delayed billing.
