Abstract: The existing systems are either an electronic energy meter or an electro-mechanical meter which are currently in use is limited to record up to kWh units. The kWh units recorded by meter readers monthly, on foot which need to be processed by a meter reading company. A GSM based Energy meter with instant billing facility is introduced is efficient, but still the problem of missing SMS will degrade the accuracy and performance. A more reliable and user friendly system by creating web portal for multiple access using the advanced Visual studio .net frame work which will manage the data efficiently even if there is loss of SMS. It makes the design different from the previous proposals and also increases the throughput. The GSM/GPRS channel is a very useful means of communication as sending data as SMS turns out to be a very handy tool, due to its good area coverage capability and cost effectiveness. The front end web portal is User friendly and any employee with minimum knowledge of computers can work on this software. Employees can read the meter by sitting in their office. [1]
