Energy requirement is ever increasing in recent years due to the tremendous development in technology, industries and most seriously the population blast. Increasing demand and ever increasing population leads to the situation of energy shortage. Energy shortage increases the cost of consumption which is a serious concern in developing as well as developed countries. The above mentioned issues extend this problem to an illegal activity i.e. electricity theft is termed as non-technical loss. This electricity theft is estimated to cost billions of dollars per year in many countries.
