Abstract: Water Water is a Life of the human being. When it comes to its proper usage then it will reach us up to the crest but its wastage is very Costly for economically as well as by Humanity point of view. Pune Municipal Corporation spends about 100 Million Rupees every year on Filtering and purification of water for the commercial and home use . In addition, they spend about 10-15 million rupees on the maintenance and repairing of those traditional Analog Water meters. Then also the Department of Water supply section gets less revenue on its various Taxes of water from the public and or from the industry because they have set a fixed billing method for every user for unlimited usage of water. So that people thought that why I use less water even if i save the water but our colleague is wasting the water then also both we are giving the same bill so why i save the water. But these IoT based Smart water meters are made to track the usage of water with force and total usage of water digitally for each and every Homes and societies by processing the real time usage of water data and billing to the respective user according to its usage. With this system user needs to pay for its usage only, not like a traditional fixed rate Tax. So that the user will use the water carefully and the situation like shortage or Wastage of water will not be there because of per/lit billing. Also in traditional analog meters there is no facility of Tap Leakage detection but using the digital meters we can be able to track the Leakage and it is easy to find as well as this technology will also save the water because of leakage by closing the main inlet automatically if this situation occurs . Because of the digital system we can get the real time notification updates on our android phone about over usage of water as well as about the Leakage. The Billing system is also the digital by using Online billing to save the paper and to make system green and paper friendly.
