- 40 MW power is being supplied in Mango and 40 MW in Karandih division.
In many non-company areas including Birsanagar, Baridih, Parsudih, Govindpur, Jugsalai, Bagbera, Kitadih, Sunder Nagar, Mango and Kadma, there was sudden power outage on Tuesday night. At 10 pm on Tuesday night, the SLD and CLD declared an alert regarding power shortage in the city. Till late night, 80 MW of electricity was being supplied in the affected areas instead of 120 MW.
40 MW power is being supplied in Mango and 40 MW in Karandih division. PK Vishwakarma, Executive Engineer, Electricity Department, said – Due to the power generation being affected by TVNL (Tenughat Vidyut Nigam Limited), the supply has deteriorated in non-company areas. The power cut has started in the city since 10 pm. Due to less power than the demand, power feeders were being switched off every one hour in residential areas and supplied in rotation. It may take at least 48 hours to fix this power supply problem.
