Mumbai power cut
The entire Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) faced an outage on Monday morning due to a grid failure, from the incoming electricity supply from TATA power, informed (Brihanmumbai Electricity Supply and Transport)
BEST PRO Manoj Warade said, “There is a grid failure due to that supply coming from TATA power to BEST is stopped, so we can’t distribute power to our 10 lakh consumers. I regret personally, as soon as the grid is restored, supply will be restored,”
Local train services were hit across the city and announcements were made about it at the railway stations.
As per Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, the power supply is likely to be restored within an hour, “Electric power failure due to Central grid failure of TATA Power at Kalwa. It will take 45 min to 1 hr to restore the supply,” the municipal body stated.
Maharashtra Energy Minister Nitin Raut also confirmed that the services will be restored soon.
Meanwhile, as per sources, a meeting of the Power Ministry is currently being headed by Union Power Minister RK Singh.
