The state govt. has maintained that the entire bill footing amount will be Rs. 8,400 crore per annum.

AP govt. will also install smart meters to all agricultural power connections. It is a part of the central govt. suggested reforms which the state govt. had agreed to implement for 2% hike in the FRBM Act borrowing limit.

The state government will have to spend an estimated Rs.1,500 crore to install smart meters to the agriculture power connections. The free power to the farm sector was introduced by late Chief Minister Rajasekhara Reddy in May 2004 and the subsequent government continued it.
