Power cuts reimposed

Two-hour scheduled power cuts are back to try the patience of citizens, in addition to the two to four hours of unscheduled cuts, with the power shortage touching 80 MU due to technical snags in two units of the NTPC. The Central discom officials have been imposing unannounced cuts for hours together, over and above the announced cuts of two to three hours in various parts of the city over the last few days. The load sheddings have been inconveniencing citizens for the past few days, and when questioned, the officials were first caught unawares about the unannounced cuts. They later said that those cuts too were scheduled.
