UT authorities had announced these cuts during the end of December. This was due to a decrease of entitlement of power to UT with the outage of various central generation plants like Chamera-1, Bhakra, Sangrauli etc. Due to this, there is a gap of around 20 MW between demand and supply of power in the city.
Currently, the residents have to face 1 or 1 and half hour power cut everyday. The UT authorities have introduced a weekly day off in the industrial areas on a rotational basis to save power for domestic use.
