NABL is an autonomous body under the Quality Council of India and gives accreditation to laboratories for their technical competence of testing and calibration within the given scope of the laboratory. Test results from NABL accredited laboratories are acceptable globally and are considered equivalent to accreditations received by MRA (Mutual Recognition Agreement) partners of International Laboratory Accreditation Corporation, Denmark.

Tata Power’s Smart Meter Testing and Calibration Laboratory, as the company informed, can carry out complete testing of smart meters, including remote connect/disconnect, remote firmware upgradation, meter data communication, tamper event logging along with Inter-Laboratory Comparison (ILC) testing for smart meters.

The data analytics tools that come with smart meters allows customers to view and optimise their electricity consumption real time through the customer portal and mobile app. Smart meters also help customer to modify their usage pattern by identifying the source and reason for wastage and thus save their energy bill. Smart meters also capture data on abnormal consumption of energy and alert customers of possible theft or pilferage of electricity.
