Power cuts for domestic users to be reduced
Domestic power consumers in Andhra Pradesh are in for some good news with power cuts being reduced ranging from three hours a day to one hour in Hyderabad and major cities and also in other towns and rural areas.
The duration of cuts will be slashed from four hours to two in district headquarters, six hours to four in towns and municipalities and eight hours to six hours in mandal headquarters.
The Government has decided to reschedule the power cut timings as overall demand for power has come down from a high of over 300 million units per day due to demand from agricultural pump sets coming down.
Power requirement for 32 lakh farm pump sets shoots up during kharif and rabi crop seasons. It has now come down as the rabi season has concluded.
