As per the Minister for Power, Karnataka the state is facing a severe shortage of power due to the huge increase in demand and hence a 2 hours load shedding is scheduled since yesterday.
Belgaum needs 120MW whereas it is getting 80MW and hence a shortage of 40 MW. In the future, the load shedding time could also be increased.
The worst part is, there is no schedule so it can be dark any time of the day now. Diwali is approaching and this Diwali could be a black out one.
