Power deficit: Part of Mumbai, suburbs face outage
Mumbai, Apr 26: Many pockets in financial capital Mumbai and its adjoining suburbs witnessed a power outage today morning.
Reasons for the outage, which comes at a time when Maharashtra is reeling under power deficit, which has led discoms to compulsorily cut power supply to some pockets, were not immediately known, news agency PTI reported.
Some parts of central Mumbai, along with suburbs like Bhandup and Mulund within the municipal limits of Mumbai, and the adjoining cities of Thane and Dombivili faced a power outage from around 10 am, as per various reports.
A comment from any official in the power distribution or generation companies is still awaited.
The financial capital generally does not face any mandatory power cuts as part of load shedding, but has faced troubles in the past, including a disruption that lasted up to 18 hours in October 2020.
