NEW DELHI: The government plans to procure 10 million pre-paid meters to be deployed in Uttar Pradesh as part of the Saubhagya scheme, which aims to add more than 40 million households to the power grid by December next year, reports Nishtha Saluja.

Leading national and international companies, including L&T, HPL, Landis and Gyr, Secure Meters, China-based Shenzhen Inhemeter, and Genus Power, have expressed their interest in the global competitive-bidding tender for the pre-paid meters.

“We have issued a letter of interest for procurement of these pre-paid meters and about 15 companies have submitted their pre-qualification documents, which we are currently scrutinising. We will float the tender next week,” Energy Efficiency Services Ltd managing director Saurabh Kumar told ET.
