Power cuts and protests against it were seen in most parts of north India, where as in the south 6 to 8 hours of power cuts were seen without much resent from the public as yet.
As the monsoon has yet to arrive and faults in the various power transmission units and producing units all over the country are causing acute power cuts all over.
Belgaum is not left either. There is an unscheduled power cut of 6- 7 hours daily from the past 4 days. A common man can understand the problems of power supply companies but the manner in which the same is being implemented is a cause of worry.
There are power cuts in Bangalore and whole of the state in a same manner. When the lights go, you should be sure that they won’t come for an hour at least, even after and if they still don’t come make the time slot for 2 hours.
Particularly in Belgaum the weather is cold enough for the fans and AC’s to be shut down which is saving power but the small business man like a photocopying, internet cafes had to shut down as there is no power. IT companies working in Belgaum also face the same problem and Swapneel of eth1 network solutions said that he had a 12 hour back up for his office which needs to run 24 *7, 365 days and he had to buy a generator to get power back up. He added we cannot do without power, if inverters fail then we have to have backup systems for this as well.
The condition will not improve in the week at least, hope the rains god come and also the power generation plants get back on their feet.
Till all is ok, be primed to face darkness.
