Abstract: According to the statistics of the Indian government, India loses 16.2 billion rupees due to the power theft by the people in all the states and many of the people don't pay their bills and still use the electricity for free because of the improper use of the existing systems. The electricity board in India also experiences lot of troubles in various tasks like energy auditing, billing, regulating power in order to keep the system running smoothly. To prevent the above-mentioned problems a smart circuit breaker kit for electricity board is developed with the help of Arduino Uno, Relay, GSM module, Subscriber's Identity Module (SIM), and Real Time Clock (RTC). The major problem of power theft can also be prevented through control over the energy meter. The controlling of energy meter will be easy as the GSM signals became part of the daily life as they are available everywhere.
