With summers, comes the power cut in Gurgaon
With summers at the door step, Gurgaon has already started experiencing power cuts. Known as the millennium city, the electric supply to some areas is very low. Since 2-3 days, the residents of Old city are undergoing power cuts which last for 7-8 hours per day.

Agonized by the deficient state, people run from the office of the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) to Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) office or calling up the call centers which usually are found to be busy. Even then there is no improvement seen.

According to a Navbharat Times MCG's SDO Pawan Kumar said that if the maintenance work of the feeders is not carried out on time, the peak season may see a big problem of electricity shortage. He also said that the cables of the Shivpuri feeder are very old. If not changed/ repaired, a huge power cut is expected.

So, to prevent such complications, maintenance work is being carried out due to which power cut is expected for 5 days. According to the sources, sector-6 and sector-7 are the worst hit. These areas are facing 7-8 hours of power shortage since the last 2-3 days. Here, electricity goes off at around 10 in the morning and is back by 6 in the evening.
