Abstract :

The aim of the project is to automate the prepaid billing of energy meter. In this project the front end is User friendly and the employees can work on this software with minimum knowledge of Computers. Employees can read the meter by sitting in the Office. For front end designing VB.net is used.

This project is useful for billing purpose in Electricity board. Instead of going to every house & taking the readings, in this project by just sending an SMS we can receive the readings of the house and we can recharge the electric bill. This system uses VB.net Basics software, which is designed as the application platform to send or receive SMS using the Modem, then process and stores the data.

VB.net software has two main functions
1) to interact with Modem and read the COM port
2) maintain the database.

Description :

Every month we can see a person standing in front of our house from Electricity board whose duty is to read the energy meter and handover the bills (electric)  to the owner of that house. This is nothing but meter reading. According to that reading we have to pay the bills. The main drawback of this system is that person  has to go area by area and he has to read the meter of every house and handover the bills.

The Electricity board authority has to give privileges for these
 people to do their duty monthly. The thing is, Government will not appoint any particular persons for this duty.

The people working in these boards will go on a 
particular day and do their duty leaving all their pending works. Due to this, their work will be delayed and this is great loss for government. To overcome this drawback we have come up with an idea and this idea will help the government and it will save the time of the employees working in these boards.
