Gurgaon in power surplus, claims DHVBN General Manager
The frequent power cuts in Gurgaon have started-especially during weekends, when one thinks of taking a long nap during the day or aims to cook long lunches and dinner for family. The summers have barely started in Gurgaon and this is not a good sign as more and more localities face power cuts.

Trying to understand the power situation of Gurgaon, we had a word with Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) General Manager, Sanjeev Chopra who said that power cuts are result of local work permit, given to change wires or maintain the power supply of the city. He further said, ''There is no power supply shortage in Gurgaon, infact, we are at a power surplus for the next 4 years.''

Emphasizing on the fact, he also said that local work permits are given on work days and not on Sundays as people stay at home. However, the data supplied by DHBVN shows that power supplied after April 20 was higher than the amount supplied in the same period this month.

Alekhya Bolla, a resident of Gurgaon agreed to the power cuts and said, '' power cuts have started with the summer, although Sundays are a relief as there is hardly any power cut till now.''
