With the mercury shooting upwards and the gap between demand and supply is increasing each day, the Transco has imposed power cut for three hours from 7 am to 8.30 am and 2.30 pm to 4 pm in the district headquarters town with immediate effect. In other towns and mandal headquarters, the power cut is for four hours from 6 am to 8 am and 4 pm to 6 pm. These cuts apart, an unscheduled power cut during peak hours in the name of emergency load relief is not ruled out, according to D. Satyanarayana, SE (Operations).
