‘Power cuts may reduce production’

delhi Updated: Oct 19, 2011 00:14 IST

Inadequate electricity supply in the national capital region is expected to reduce production from industrial zones by about 35-40%, Assocham said on Tuesday.

In Gurgaon, the power demand from industry is around 1,200 MW to 1,400 MW, as against the availability of 900-1,000 MW, the chamber said.

Similarly, in Faridabad, the power demand, particularly in industrial locations, is around 600 MW to 700 MW, as against the availability of around 300-400 MW, it said, adding that units were facing daily power cuts of 5-8 hours.

“Power shortages may reduce industrial production in the NCR by nearly 35-40%,” it said.

Non-availability of power has affected production in Faridabad and if the power scenario remains unchanged, the resultant loss in industrial production could surpass 35-40%, it said.

The power shortage in Noida is severe as well. A power shortage of about 100-200 MW is experienced every day in the entire Noida region. PTI
