Power, water woes haunt Delhiites

Amid prevailing heat wave conditions, the power demand in Delhi shot up to an all time high of 4275 MW, leaving a huge shortfall resulting in huge power cuts across the city.

“Today’s peak demand of 4275 MW was the highest in the recorded history,” said a power department official, adding that the total loadshedding was recorded at 566 MW.

Under attack for the power crisis, Delhi Government today issued an advisory to the private discoms asking them to strictly comply with the government’s directive to publish the schedule of power cuts.
