Power Watch India - - DESPATCHES NATIONAL -

The Ban­ga­lore Elec­tric­ity Sup­ply Com­pany (Bescom) is im­ple­ment­ing an SMS-based alert sys­tem by March, which will warn con­sumers about power cuts — both planned and un­planned. The tim­ing is be­ing seen as ap­pro­pri­ate as the city usu­ally ex­pe­ri­ences con­stant in­ter­rup­tions in power sup­ply dur­ing the sum­mer months, usu­ally due to short­age of power or glitches caused by an in­crease in peak de­mand.
