Now, monthly reports on Distribution Transformers in Andhra Pradesh

The Andhra Pradesh power distribution companies (discoms) have decided to put a real-time monitoring system in place to gauge agriculture power consumption. The proposal was mooted by the discoms after the Union government directed to arrange metering system to measure energy supply from agriculture Distribution Transformers (DTRs) which helps in real-time monitoring of agriculture supply.

The Union government has also directed the discoms to send monthly reports on metering status of DTRs, feeders and consumers to Central Electricity Authority. In a teleconference on Sunday with the minister for energy, forests and environment Balineni Srinivas Reddy, the officials told the minister that the real time monitoring system would help plug loopholes in the supply system.
