This paper presents the development of a fully Automated Energy Meter which is having capabilities like remote monitoring and controlling of energy meter. Automatic Meter Reading system (AMR) continuously monitors the energy meter and sends data on request of service provider through SMS. It saves huge human labour. The data received from an energy meter has been stored in database server which was located at electricity Board station through SMS gate way for further processing by energy provider. Energy provider sends electricity bill either by e-mail, SMS or by post. This system allows to the customers to pay bill online either by credit card, debit card or by net banking.
