In addition to the above app you can also recharge your smart meter through this website.

However, to initiate the recharge process, you first have to create an account in it.

Once you open the above link, tap on the register button as I show you in the screenshot below.

After clicking on the Register button, the portal opens a new webpage to start your registration.

In this page, you have to fill your consumer number, mobile number, and email address.

Make sure fill your registered mobile number that you have given to the electricity department during taking the electricity connection.

Now, out of these three fields the portal asks you to fill, the consumer number and mobile number fields are mandatory to fill. But, I suggest you to fill your email address as well, so that you get communications in your mail box as well.

Once you register into the portal, all you need is to login to your dashboard and then you are good to make the payment.
