Power consumers in the domestic sector living in areas where APPSC Group II examinations were held, were exempted from power cut for one day on Sunday.

In spite of the present severe power shortage that has shot up to 40 million units per day now, the AP Transco and distribution companies allowed uninterrupted and unrestricted supply to the domestic sector consumers at all the places of these examinations in the State--be it city like Hyderabad, Vijayawada, Visakhapatnam, Warangal or a district headquarter like Nalgonda.

AP Transco CMD Ajay Jain said the power cut was lifted at these places throughout the State as per the government instructions to enable the candidates to prepare themselves at home for the examinations and ensure electricity supply at the examination centres. He said there will be no change in the power cut schedule.
