DLF Phase III face the power-cuts
The summer is yet to reach its peak and the Gurgaon residents have already started dealing with difficulties with power cuts, especially the residents of DLF Phase III, who are facing a hard time due to the recurrent outages and low-voltage supply.

A hardware failure on Monday night affected a high-tension cable, tripping electricity supply to parts of U and V blocks which was later resolved. For some time now, the residents have been complaining of deteriorating power scenario. DHBVN, as reported by, said that power availability was not an issue in the area, and that the supply to this part of the city was usually uninterrupted.

Rajesh Nandal, a discom official said “The main problem in this area has to do with overload conditions. This is why the voltage profile often goes down and there are breakdowns.” He also said that plans to bifurcate the existing feeder stations in DLF III were in the works.

Adding that a timeline for the project was undecided, he also said “We also have to set up a new transformer here, for which we are in talks with private contractors.”

Accusing overload conditions for the low standards of power supply to Phase III, a DLF representative said “We have sent a list of commercial outlets and other facilities which are overdrawing on their allotted share of electricity to the discom,”

Sudhir Kapoor, DLF City RWA's secretary general said that one other cause for the residents power woes was an overhead supply cable, which has suffered repeated breakdowns in the past.

He also said. “There are parts of Phase III which face power supply troubles, mostly caused by this overhead cable. The decision has already been taken by the task force committee, on which I am the residents' representative, to take it underground and 90 per cent of the supply problems will be resolved once that happens.”
