Today's society is often characterized as an information society. Technological developments, particularly in the areas of computers and telecommunications have fundamentally changed the character of the modern organization. The smart card is one of the latest additions to the world of information technology. A Smart Card is a card incorporating a “CHIP” or (microprocessor) which is a type of tiny computer embedded in the plastic. The metal circle visible on the outside of the card is not the microprocessor itself, but rather a unit containing its outside connections.
In traditional current billing system they are taking the meter reading from the energy meter, and they are preparing the current bill if they are not paid with in certain amount of time the power will be deducted .But in our project we are using a smart card,in this amount is already feeded. According to the users load the enegy meter will be rotated and the same amount will be deducted from the smart card. Required Hardware      Microcontrollers Smart card reader Smart cards Energy meter Driver IC for printer.

.Required software:    KEIL micro vision 4 Proload software Top view simulators.
