Grid failure: Operations at IGI airport remain unaffected
Due to the failure of Northern grid, seven states of the north faced a massive power cut from 2:30 am on Sunday night till Monday morning. Public services like trains, including the Delhi metro stopped its services due to power scarcity.

HOWEVER, OPERATIONS at the Indira Gandhi International Airport remained unaffected by this power failure,which stopped the normal life. According to a spokesperson of Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL), which manages the airport, no flights were either canceled or delayed due to the power cut.

“DIAL would like to confirm that all flight operations at IGIA are normal with no cancellations and delays. The power supply was restored to DG Systems instantaneously and has been running smoothly for the last 7 hours and will continue so until the normal supply is restored,” DIAL spokesperson, said in a statement.

Due to the problem in Northern grid near Agra the states of Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, UP, Rajasthan, Jammu & Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh faced a total blackout.

As per the latest media reports, power has been partially restored in these states, however, it may may take another few more hours to rectify the problem fully.

This is said to be the worst power crisis in last 10 years. Due to the power crisis around 200 passenger trains have been affected in north India and trains like Shatabdi and Rajdhani are running late by four to five hours.
