UP Prepaid Smart Meter Yojana (Objectives and Benefits)
The Yogi government has the following objectives behind starting the Electricity Department Smart Meter Scheme (Smart Meter Installation Project in Uttar Pradesh):-
With the help of prepaid smart electricity meters (Smart Meter Yojana in UP), in the future, electricity can be paid on time by government officials, public representatives, and ministers. Because if electricity is to be used, then they have to first recharge according to their need.
Due to the timely payment of electricity bills, the burden on the department will be reduced, so that the government can use that money for providing other services to the citizens.
Due to this, electricity rates will also come down in the coming time, so that everyone will get cheap electricity.
The biggest problem in today’s time is electricity theft, which can be solved through prepaid meters. Because on stealing these meters, the electricity department will clearly know that the Smart Meter Project in UP has been tampered with, that too with evidence.
This prepaid smart meter plan will also reduce the loss in electricity distribution, which is a big problem.
India produces the highest electricity in the whole world, yet the electricity rate in our country is high. This is because some people do not pay the electricity bill. Apart from this, many people steal electricity, due to which the burden of stolen electricity also falls on those people who honestly pay their bills and think about the country.
This campaign will be finished in phases. In the first phase, 1 lakh Smart Prepaid Meter Yojana UP will be installed. So far, about 7 lakh smart prepaid meters (Uttar Pradesh govt. Smart Prepaid Meter Scheme) have been installed in the entire state and by 2022 all the customers in the entire state will be brought under its purview. Apart from this, the central government will also start work on such technology in the coming time so that the problem of electricity theft can be avoided.
