Defective Metering and Meter Reading Errors

Defective Metering

Tampered, slow running, stalled, damaged meters are a cause of huge losses to the utility. The electromechanical meters tend to get sluggish over a period of time and record much less consumption than actual. Several stuck up and damaged meters are permitted for years causing losses to the utility.

Meter Reading Errors

Readings are inadvertently noted wrongly. For a good number of services, at times, the meter reader, continuously reports nil consumption without any comment. Meter reader furnishes no readings in a few cases or furnishes table readings. Sometimes wrong multiplication factors are adopted.
