JSEB areas affected

Areas serviced by Jharkhand State Electricity Board (JSEB) experienced power cuts following supply restrictions from the central load despatch on Wednesday.

Power supply was restricted due to less generation at both Tenughat Vidyut Nigam Limited and Patratu Thermal Power Station.

The worst hit areas were Mango, Sundernagar, Parsudih, Govindpur and Adityapur.

ďWe had no electricity for more than two hours this morning. Again in the afternoon there was no power for three hours at a stretch,Ē said Satish Gupta, a resident of Mango.

Residents of Jugsalai had to face load-shedding every two hours. The situation was no better in other JSEB command areas which faced problems of erratic power supply and voltage fluctuation.

The industrial units at Adityapur and Gamharia, which are dependent on JSEB, however, did not face too many problems, as a majority was shut due to the trade union strike.

Gamharia grid that feeds Adityapur normally requires an average 120MW, but received only 90MW.
