Energy Efficiency Services (EESL), under the Ministry of Power, Government of India has put out a mega tender for procurement of 50 lakh smart meters.
Smart meters will help in reducing Aggregate Technical and Commercial (AT&C) losses, power thefts and also help monitor round the clock power supply eventually leading to greater efficiency and 24X7 powers for all. 
EESL will be making the entire upfront investment as well as maintain the whole infrastructure for the next 10 years. The tender was issued in July this year. The meters are being procured for implementation of smart grid projects in the states of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh. 
These meters will completely change the way in which electrical energy is presently being consumed and paid for by the consumers. Installation of these smart meters along with its associated communication and IT infrastructure will enable the DISCOMs to obtain real time energy consumption data of each consumer for subsequent analysis.
In order to make the entire project feasible and affordable, EESL has unbundled the Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) project into two parts viz. procurement of smart meter and arranging the system integrator.
EESL is also planning to issue the tender for selection of system integrator early next month, as second part of the AMI project.
