In this regard, Mangat Ram Bagri,a BJP member and ward councilor, said. ?Yes, there is power shortage. We are doing our best to get the people out of this crisis. It is also the fault of the DHBVN officials who do not work at the time when their help is needed the most. Also, temperature is increasing day by day and so is the electricity demand by the people, so, there is a slight power shortage and we are looking into new ways to supply the requisite amount of electricity. Now, it is our government in power. So, you can see a brighter future ahead.?
The DHBVN, however, have a completely different story to tell. Vinod Aggarwal, DGM, Gurgaon, said, ?We attend to the residents' complaints immediately. We have also introduced a 24x7 toll free number for the residents. There is a 24 hour control room to deal with the residents' complaints. Usually, there are local power cuts. Since, it is too hot these days, the transformers, sometimes, fail which result in the power cuts.?
The millennium city, home to multinational companies like Genpact and Google, has experienced a building boom and the steepest increases in real estate prices in India in reccent years, but the essential services from sewage treatment to roads have not kept up with this progress. Gurgaon's biggest problem is that demand outstrips supply, when it comes to electricity.
