UP res­i­dents can now sub­mit their own meter read­ing

Power Watch India - - DESPATCHES NATIONAL -

UP res­i­dents can sub­mit their elec­tric­ity meter read­ing on­line or through SMS mes­sage by them­selves in­stead of re­ly­ing on line-men or power depart­ment of­fi­cials to gen­er­ate their meter read­ings. The process, called ‘trust billing’ was an­nounced by the chair­man of Ut­tar Pradesh Elec­tric­ity Reg­u­la­tory Com­mis­sion (UPERC), to be im­ple­mented with im­me­di­ate ef­fect across the state. How­ever, onus of sub­mit­ting cor­rect meter read­ing would lie on con­sumers. If a con­sumer sub­mits a lower read­ing than the ac­tual read­ing on the meter with an in­tent to re­duce the elec­tric­ity bill charge, ac­tion will be taken against such con­sumers.
