The newly launched AMR services will lead to savings in time and costs, as meters can be read wirelessly through this technology, and meter readers would no longer need to walk door to door to read meters. Through the newly introduced, fast and reliable e-Services, customers can view bills online (e-Bill), pay online (e-Pay) and get customer services online (e-Portal).
The inauguration was held in conjunction with the company’s most celebrated day, World Water Day, which falls on 22 March of every year.
