This project deals with the implementation of power line network in the field of electricity billing. In the present scenario power line communication (PLC) is one of the economical ways of communication of data. Even though there are new methods of wireless communication methods, practically it is very much time consuming to install such a system, and also it is highly cost consuming method .But the power lines which already exist and connect every household in a particular area is more advantageous as it does not require any new installation or erection for establishment of communication channels, and thus is not a time consuming one . One biggest advantage of this system is that it can be readily implemented, unlike the other modern methods. The power line network can also be used for creating emergency response networks. This project eliminates the need for employing EB meter readers and this set of employees can be used elsewhere.
