SSI owners block roads for power supply


In the past week or so, Belgaum has been witnessing some erratic power supply by HESCOM. Power is cut at any time and the entire timings come up to 6 to 8 hours.

The Small Scale industries association did a Rata Roko and blocked the road for a while in protest of this erratic power supply by HESCOM.


Industrialists complained that due to this erratic power supply all their manufacturing plans have been hit and many complained of more losses in production than normal due to sudden power cuts.



  1. The power situation is the same throught the state..
    Its mainly because of the repair work in Raichur Thermal plant…. And none of the hydro electrical plants have started production because of in sufficient rains..

    We need to switch on to more sustainable & renewable sources of energy.. Tats the only way out..!
    Conserve available energy,, pls don't waste..!
