Chandigarh: To facilitate consumers in billing-related matters, electricity distribution companies in Haryana have enabled consumers to upload meter reading on their own. This system has been put in place in 42 cities under Uttar Haryana Bijli Nigam Limited and Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam. Domestic, non-domestic and commercial consumers having load up to 20 KW will be able to avail the facility. The discoms hope to weed out the problems of wrong billing, inadequate reading or average billing with the move. Due to the lockdown, many consumers got electricity bills on average basis. Consumers will also be able to use this facility to revise their bills according to the actual reading.
