Genus Power Infrastructures Limited’s shares were up by 2.11 per cent after the company was awarded a Letter of Award (LOA) valued at ₹2,259.94 crore for the appointment of Advanced Metering Infrastructure Service Providers (AMISPs).

This includes the design of an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) system along with the supply, installation, commissioning, and Facilities Management Services (FMS) for 27.33 Lakhs Smart Prepaid Meters, system meters, and DT Meters with corresponding energy accounting on a design, build, finance, own, operate, and transfer basis.

According to the company, the increasing adoption of smart meters by various State Electricity Boards (SEBs) is attributed to the impact of the ‘Reforms-Based, Result-Linked Power Distribution Sector Scheme.’ Anticipated steady growth in order volumes is expected throughout the fiscal year 2024.
