Billing Quality Index (BQI) is a key parameter to decide whether the quality power bill is being distributed by the DISCOMs or not? It makes sure that

  • Power Bill should generate and serve until the 25th of the month.
  • The first Bill of a consumer should generate within 2 months.
  • Reading base bills should only be served.
  • Wrong or Provisional bill should be corrected within a month.

BQI = {(1xB + 1xC - 0.2xD - 0.2xE - 0.4xF - 0.2xG)/A}x100

where,

  • A - Billable Consumers
  • B - Actual reading base Bills generated untill 25th of the month
  • C - Prev Bill was prov/incorrect but current bill is OK
  • D - IDF Bill >= 3 months
  • E - RDF Bill >= 3 months
  • F - New Connection whose 1st Bill not generated since 2 months
  • G - Billed after 25th
