The current technology of billing process uses manual process of meter reading, updating the server with reading and billing customer. The authors are suggesting a technology that includes android application and web application to get reading, updating server and inform consumers about bill units and amount. Android application is used to get the readings from the meter automatically by simply capturing the image of the meter and then performing the OCR technique on the captured image in android app which is nothing but “Optical character recognition”.
