Abstract

Electricity is an energy that play a major role in human life. In day to day life, each and every device from machinery to wrist watch everything works on electricity. It is the most basic requirement next to food, shelter, and clothing. From the past decade’s lot of changes took place in electricity departments but even now they are using manual billing system. This system has a wide range of disadvantages like malpractices are done while billing, escaping from punishment if any late payments, manpower for billing and collecting bills and wastage of paper billing. And moreover, if a fire accident or a technical problem arises the whole lane (transformer) will be terminated from power supply this may cause an inconvenience to the peer consumers too. Here, we are concerned about the economic loss that arises due to the manual billing system. In the manual billing system, every month end or for a couple of months bill is generated. An employee from the electricity department comes to each and every house for billing the meters based on the number of units the consumer has consumed. Hence, In this paper, we propose and discuss a new adaptive mechanism which reduces all the above-mentioned losses.
