No load-shed­ding dur­ing Di­wali: Ma­hadis­com

The Free Press Journal - - MUMBAI/STATE -

Claim­ing that the power gen­er­a­tion sit­u­a­tion is likely to come back to nor­malcy, state-run dis­tri­bu­tion com­pany Ma­hadis­com on Thurs­day said it is tak­ing all mea­sures to en­sure there is no load-shed­ding dur­ing Di­wali. Terming Ma­ha­rash­tra as a power sur­plus state, Ma­hadis­com’ di­rec­tor Vish­was Pathak said non-avail­abil­ity of coal re­sulted in short­age of en­ergy sup­ply that led to load-shed­ding in the state. Gen­er­ally a sur­plus stock of 21 days is main­tained, Pathak said adding that this time it was only of two days.“We have man­aged to buy ex­cess of power from the cen­tral grid to meet the de­mand,” he said.
