Smart Meter National Programme

The smart meter national programme is an initiative by the government to promote the use of smart meters across the country. The programme aims to provide subsidy for installation of smart meters in households and also help with the implementation of smart grid technologies.

The programme is being implemented in phases, with the first phase starting in 2016. So far, over 2 million smart meters have been installed under the programme. The target is to install 50 million smart meters by 2020.

What are smart meters? Smart meters are digital devices that can track and record electricity consumption data in real-time. This information can then be transmitted to utilities for billing and other purposes.
