You may not have to wait for the electricity bill any longer. Trust billing is now available for UPPCL consumers since 2017. It will let you generate your own electricity bill online. You would be able to feed your meter read and maximum demand on a online portal and submit them to generate your bill.
Actually, UP Electricity Regulatory Commission has allowed trust billing in their 7th amendment of UP electricity supply code - 2005 on 21-May-2016.
However, to keep a check on consumers giving wrong readings, there will be a provision of penalty too. In case of excess reading stored in the meter, consumer will be charged 1.5 times more for every unit stored.
But, this facility is not available for all the consumers. Let us know about the eligible consumers.
