Landis+Gyr won a contract from Bangalore Electricity Supply Co. to supply 1.7 million single phase digital electricity meters over the next twelve months.

BESCOM is responsible for the distribution of power to eight districts in the state of Karnataka, including the city of Bangalore, with a population of over 13.9 million people.
