The spot billing process helps in integrating various activities being handled by several people at multiple locations into a single window operation.

The process of collecting billing data from LT / Domestic electro-mechanical meters using hand-held computers consist of the following steps.

    Reading etc.
  • The meter reader moves around collecting the required data.
  • At the end of the day, the meter reader downloads the data into a Computer, where the master data base gets updated.
  • Using the updated data base, the Computer can generate the Bills.
