Several parts of the national capital were hit by power cuts amid severe heatwave on Tuesday.

This is due to a fire at sub-station of Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd (PGCIL) in Mandola, UP.

The power restoration process has begun and electricity is now gradually returning to different areas."
