The need of an expanded and strengthened power grid is a fact. The power industry faces many major challenges in the coming years. So instead of using conventional power system, it is very essential to convert or change our power system to smart system and it is smart grid. As an important part of Smart Grid, smart metering attracts more and more attention all over the world. It is the way for energy consumer to sense the benefit of smart grid directly. It provides the users, a Digital Meter which displays the real time power consumption every time in very friendly and detailed format, and a website to check & analyze their consumption and expenses on energy, using different types of graphs, tabulated and manipulated data. It not only comforts their users but also give relief to the distribution company by minimizing power losses by using automatic Power factor maintenance technique, and providing anti-power theft capability. It also gives a control of power distribution through which Distribution Company can limit the user from exceeding usage of power in specific time duration. This paper discusses the structure of smart meter, smart metering system, communication of smart metering, smart meter government policies, role various issues and challenges involved in design, deployment, utilization, and maintenance of the smart meter infrastructure.
