Gurgaon: Discom blames construction activities for frequent outages
After hassled residents raised their voices against the erratic power supply and outages, the Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitaran Nigam (DHBVN) said the outages are planned shutdowns for facilitating the construction activities undertaken by the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) for underpasses at Iffco Chowk, Signature Tower and Rajiv Chowk. The NHAI is also widening the Delhi Gurgaon Expressway, besides constructing flyover at Hero Honda Chowk.
The DHBVN officials said the agency is fully capable of meeting the peak summer demand of the city.
“The outages that the residents are bearing with are planned ones so as to help the NHAI smoothly carry out its constructions,” said a DHBVN spokesperson on Tuesday, adding that other than these planned ones, there will be no outages either on account of any deficiency in the system or on account of shortage of power.
