What is Spot Billing System?

According to RG Gupta, CMD of Jaipur Discom, consumers in remote areas and towns do not receive bills on time and then they have to pay penalties for the late payments. From January, an option will be available for the users to make bill payments at the time of bill reading by the feeder in-charge.

People will be able to pay bills at their doorstep as soon as it gets generated by feeder in-charge after he or she takes reading from the meter. Consumers have to visit e-Mitra or go to subdivision counter for electricity bill payments.

Feeder in-charge must be present within at least 5 meters of the electricity meter, only then he’ll be able to generate meter readings. He will have to reach the users’ spot for the readings. Spot Billing device and mobile phones have been linked to Google GPS. This step has been taken to ensure less difficulty and no fault in bill generation and payments
