Usually for electric meter reading,representative from electricity governing board come and take the reading and those units are converted to electric charges that reflect in our electricity bills.

My question is,is there any system that generates ,finds electricity consumed by users so that we can reduce the faults produced by reading man..also we can find the readings faster if there is some centralised automated systems,why is that system not applicable in India ?

Nowdays, Spot billing machines are used to generate electricity bills. These are hand held computers are specially designed for billing applications. The electronic circuits are designed to allow for easy customizing of billing applications.  The units have rugged printers attached for data such as bills etc, for printing on the spot.
This machines reduces the manual calculation as just by entering the meter reading bill will generate.Due to feature like user login and admin login security of the  system increases and management becomes easier.It  increases accuracy of the system.

This system is applicable in India .In many states, these machines are used to generate electricity bills.

Automatic meter reading, or AMR, is the technology of automatically collecting consumption, diagnostic, and status data from water meter or energy metering devices (gas, electric) and transferring that data to a central database for billing, troubleshooting, and analyzing. This technology mainly saves utility providers the expense of periodic trips to each physical location to read a meter. Another advantage is that billing can be based on near real-time consumption rather than on estimates based on past or predicted consumption. This timely information coupled with analysis can help both utility providers and customers better control the use and production of electric energy, gas usage, or water consumption.
