Future Opportunities

With an implementation target of 250 million smart meters, Ministry has notified timelines for the replacement of existing meters with smart meters – in selected areas by December 2023 and pan India by March 2025

In order to facilitate the implementation process, the Government of India has launched the Revamped Distribution Reforms Scheme (RDSS) with an outlay of Rs. 3.03 lakh crore with special emphasis on grant-based support for smart metering.

Driven by RDSS and Ministry of Power guidelines on smart metering timelines, tenders for ~28 million smart meters have been issued by various states while many are in the pipeline.
