‘Genus Power smart meters have played an important role during COVID’

Excited with this achievement, Jitendra K Agarwal, Joint Managing Director, Genus Power said, “As a leader in the Smart Metering industry, we are proud to be the first in India to achieve this figure.

All states where Genus Power Smart Meters were installed have been able to take readings remotely that resulted in bill generation & collection, helping DISCOMs to sustain their operations.”
