ARO is a semiotic artifact which provides resource utilisation awareness, while allowing the users to know about their overall savings.
COURSE, DURATION & YEAR
Given the rapid growth of economic strata of people in India, a spike in energy demand is expected, as access to automobiles and other comforts has become easily affordable. When the allocation of major resource like water between two states is already being witnessed in our country, how long would the same take to trickle down to the common human being? What if people are provided with fixed amounts of resource (electricity, water & cooking gas here) every month just like our monthly salaries, broadband plans, etc.
How would rationing in such a situation happen? How would our monthly resource plans look like? Would it still give us an option of upgrading/purchasing a particular resource given the resource’ crunch?
Will the resource monitoring systems still be in need, and if they do exist, where would the regulation be required and how will it happen? – A regulation within regulation? The bigger regulation being the fixed resources itself.
Would this behave like a near-term financial problem and would it bring dynamic pricing at peak hours (surged prices) into play? Would one have to pay accordingly on the surplus used beyond the daily limit.
With a given quantity of resources in hand, would we still dare to share? And if at all it still happens, on what basis will this sharing happen?
