The Hindu - - NATION -

In a bid to end power out­ages even at a time of sur­plus pro­duc­tion, the Cen­tre will bring in a law to pe­nalise power dis­tri­bu­tion com­pa­nies, which in­dulge in "gra­tu­itous load shed­ding", Power Min­is­ter R.K. Singh said. “We will make it a le­gal obli­ga­tion that if, af­ter 2019, there is any load shed­ding bar­ring acts of god or tech­ni­cal is­sues, the dis­com will be pe­nalised."
