Frequent power failures are affecting the functioning of the check- posts at Walayar here. The power disruptions also affect the nearly 2,000 families living in the Walayar and Chandrapuram areas.

“There would be no supply during daytime and the situation is no different at night,” a resident said.

Though there is generator in the Commercial Taxes Department check-post, the functioning of the collection counter and the green counter that allows certain types of vehicles on priority basis gets affected. Power supply disruption also affects the functioning of the check-posts of the Regional Transport Office (RTO) and Excise Department.
