India faces the issue of energy theft at a very large scale. This paper introduces a system that removes human intervention in meter readings and bill generation thereby reducing the error that usually causes chaos and energy related corruption. The proposed system is implemented using a GSM shield module on microcontroller (ArduinoÂ®) together with LDR sensor and relay. Existing metering system can be minutely modified to implement the proposed meter. The proposed scheme is to connect an LDR sensor with the blinking LED and send the data to microcontroller via GSM shield. RTC provides delay and acts an interrupt. The system includes a provision of sending an SMS to user for update on energy consumption along with final bill generation along with the freedom of load re-configuration via SMS. The disconnection of power supply on demand or due to pending dues was implemented using a relay. Hardware implementation results suggest that the accuracy of the proposed system is slightly greater than that of existing smart meters. The cost of system has been estimated to be less than the available smart meters, offering the same functionality. Bilateral communication between user and system sets it apart from the commonly available smart meters.
