In order to overcome this difficulty, Livares has launched Labha Prabha mobile Android app in association with the KSEB. It is available for download on Google Play.”
According to the scheme, consumers interested in joining the drive will have to register themselves by sending an SMS to 9287088808 in the following format: KSEB (space) Section code (space) Consumer number. The consumer will get a message in reply, indicating his/her average consumption. KSEB would also guide the consumer in the procedures to participate in the drive and provide information on how to reduce energy consumption. The information on prize won by each consumer will also be sent via SMS.
Using the Labha Prabha mobile app, consumers can now do the Registration by providing their Section code and Consumer number, add and store their reading in the app and also search the saved reading and send to KSEB, whenever they want in a single click.
