At present pumping to these locations is being done manually which involves manpower and expenditure which will be mitigated by using this IoT based Smart Pumping System.

The system also provides real time monitoring and accountability of water distributed thereby reducing water wastage. The modern system contains remote control of valves which eliminates the need for manual intervention.

The smart water pumping system identifies leakages and pilferages. The system also ensures energy saving by utilizing motor pump controls and reduces the manpower by implementing automatic value actuators. The smart water pumping system is estimated to save Rs. 1.2 crores in water savings; Rs. 24 lakhs in manpower and Rs. 3.6 lakhs in energy savings per year.
