It has not been more than 2 years since load shedding ended. We all were happy that at last Nagpur city will not face load shedding. Though it houses many power plants but still it faces hardships of load shedding the reason given by MSEDCL and Spanco is losses. Is there no loss of power when the power gets distributed from Nagpur to the adjoining cities. Is it below permissible limits at they make their own limits and take their own decisions. Power is the basic necessity after food, clothing and shelter. How can we all get deprived of power because of losses above certain limits.
It really sounds like a nightmare when ever i hear or read about power cuts. I got hold of today’s newspaper early in the morning and the first thing i could read was power cuts from the month of August. Power cuts causes lots of problems especially to offices. You need to install the whole system of battery and UPS to get uninterrupted power or the whole office work gets halted.
Shortage of coal, gas and break down of power plant machinery forced Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL) to purchase power from other sources at an extra cost. The company has decided to pass on the extra cost burden to its consumers.
