 Smart electricity billing system is an invaluable technological advancement that can lead to higher standard of living. It acts as an aid to solve many issues of the traditional meter reading system like need for manpower, accuracy, delayed work, unavailability of customer during metering visit by electricity board employee ,etc. This work presents a novel method for the design of a smart electricity billing framework. This framework involves the integration of Arduino and Ethernet Shield along with a pulse detector circuit carrying out the automatic functions that are predefined. The Ethernet Shield provides an interface with the server located at the electricity board for documentation purposes and for future references. A GSM modem acts as a gateway in each entity to have remote access over the usage of electricity.
