Power crisis: TN resolves to approach Supreme Court
The Tamil Nadu Government has resolved to approach the Supreme Court to seek its intervention to ensure the Central Government provides adequate power to the State.
A decision to this effect was taken today at the meeting of the Tamil Nadu Cabinet when it discussed the power situation in the State, according to an official press release.
The electricity utility Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation has signed agreements to procure over 1,100 MW power from out of the State to compensate for the prevailing power shortage.
The Delhi Government has surrendered over 1,721 MW power that is surplus between November 1, 2012, and March 31, 2013.
