Nowadays, electrical energy stealing becomes customary which leads to many theft influences, causes abnormality including voluntary tariff globally. Impact of stealing electricity results distribution losses and it is required to accuse extra charges to customers. To overcome this problem, data acquisition of consumed power from the residential places in terms of voltage and current is retrieved and stored in the handheld device while loading the data in cloud. Internet of things (IoT) with energy meter interpretation system has been premeditated to record the energy meter reading continuously. Apart from the automation of electric bill charging for stipulated time period, it also enhances charging accountability, if there is any manipulation error. If there is any controversies were found in the energy meter reading, mismatch in the electric bill tariff for the consumed power, this information can be fed back to the consumer. In addition, notification of power tapping is sent to the cloud, reverted back to the mail, and intimated in the mobile alert message as well.
