Four hours load shedding will be done in the Industrial areas (Udaymbag) from today. Timing would be evening 6pm to 10pm and HESCOM has asked all the industries to close all their activities during this time.
The load shedding time table is not yet put so be ware you could see power off any moment. Yesterday the whole day from 9 am to 5.30 pm the power was off due to a technical snag.
In rural areas, the load shedding is for 6 to 8 hours.
This is just October, the October heat is just getting up the mercury levels and the power shortage in the state is the just the trailer of what is in store in the months to come.
The Karnatak Govt is calling the Tatas to Karnataka for the Nano project and what will they give them a gift of Load shedding.
