DJB is deploying AMR (Automatic Meter Reading) Solution in DDA Pockets in Dwarka


DJB in collaboration with L&T is providing/changing water meters with integrated RF chip. These smart meters will provide you details of consumption day wise so that we all can wisely save water and electricity. 

Meter Reading will also become easy and accurate even wen ur house is locked. Once the meter is installed, every consumer will get ID number against which bills will be raised.

What is AMR (Automatic meter reading)?

Automatic meter reading, or AMR, is the technology of automatically collecting consumption, diagnostic, and status data from water meter or energy metering devices (gas, electric) and transferring that data to a central database for billing, troubleshooting, and analyzing. This technology mainly saves utility providers the expense of periodic trips to each physical location to read a meter. Another advantage is that billing can be based on near real-time consumption rather than on estimates based on past or predicted consumption. This timely information coupled with analysis can help both utility providers and customers better control the use and production of electric energy, gas usage, or water consumption.
AMR technologies include handheld, mobile and network technologies based on telephony platforms (wired and wireless), radio frequency (RF), or powerline transmission.

Where to Complaint?
Supply, Installation and 7years maintenance of 15mm size AMR/Non AMR water meter confirming to IS: 779:1994 or ISO 4064: 1993 standards with ISI/EEC/OIML/MID certification mark with protection class of IP68 complete in all respect in Delhi.

This is a pilot project for L&T and they have established a system in which we are responsible for supply, installation and O&M of AMR water meters for 7 years.

L&T has designed the website to keep the records of AMR meters. After installation of meters in consumer premises the data entry is done online on the website for further process of reading and billing. The advantage of online database is its easy access.

Delhi Transport Corporation introducing Electric buses to fight Pollution

The prospect of significantly lower operational expenses has the Delhi Transport Corporation veering towards the idea of replacing at least a part of its CNG fleet with electric buses.

Four months after the agency loaned one such bus from a Chinese company on a trial basis, an internal DTC report has concluded that its overall cost of operation is much lower than a CNG-run bus due to "very low maintenance/repair cost". Zero emission and lower manpower requirement are two other features that have impressed DTC.

The operational cost of the electric bus was found to be Rs 17.25/km. In contrast, a CNG AC bus costs DTC Rs 18.54 per km. A senior government official said, "On average, the electric bus ran 250km on a single charge." It consumed 27,368 units in the four-month period, which comes to an average unit rate of Rs 10.66 for the 16,915km it covered.

The price of CNG in the capital currently stands at Rs 35.59/kg. A CNG bus gives a mileage of 1.95km/kg and also requires higher maintenance. "The low-floor buses are under an annual maintenance contract with the manufacturer. The corporation pays Rs 3.5-12 a km. The rate increases every year," said the official quoted above.

The bus didn't report any breakdown during the trial, largely because there's no engine or transmission system. Only the battery needs maintenance.

The DTC, of course, will need to invest a hefty amount to begin with, as one bus will cost more than Rs 2 crore. But the official said: "The buses, when available commercially, will cost approximately the same their CNG counterparts. They will basically be assembled in India." A CNG bus costs around Rs 70-80 lakh. Interestingly, under a central scheme, the purchase of electric bus is subsidised.
