Citizens in Telangana fume over power cuts, Officials say 'NO' disruption

Even as power outages return to torment telangana citizens, state-run power providers claim to have successfully reduced power supply disruptions in the state in recent months. According to sources, telangana State Southern Power Distribution Company Limited (TGSPDCL) and telangana State Northern Power Distribution Company Limited (TGNPDCL) recently submitted a report to the government indicating that they have significantly reduced power supply interruptions and transformer failures.

According to the report, the NPDCL notified the government that it had decreased power supply disruptions by up to 59.84% and transformer failures by 18.09% this year. Similarly, the SPDCL claimed that it has reduced power disruptions by 43.90% and transformer failures by 14.61% in 33 KV lines under its authority.
"While several States are reeling under power shortage and have been declaring power holidays this summer season, telangana has been supplying quality and uninterrupted power to all sections of consumers," energy authorities stated. At a time when several states were experiencing power outages, officials declared that Telangana's electricity supply had not been disrupted in any sector, including household, industry, or agricultural.
"In addition to ensuring uninterrupted power supply, the State government has chalked out plans to ensure there are no power shortages and outages in the future," the authorities stated. However, the ground reality is different, with people experiencing power outages regularly.

Unscheduled power outages have caused alarm among inhabitants in both urban and rural locations, despite statements by power providers that there is enough supply. The state administration has recognized that there were extended hours of power outages at MGM Hospital in warangal and the government hospital in Bhongir and has requested an investigation into the occurrences.

Every day, TSSPDCL's social media account @ 'X' receives complaints from disgruntled customers. The situation in rural regions is considerably more acute, with residents facing extended periods of power outages and farmers not receiving power during peak hours.
Meanwhile, power authorities said that unseasonal rainfall and high winds in the previous few days have damaged up to 8,486 electrical poles and 240 transformers around the state. “Power staff are working round the clock to restore them on a war footing,” claimed authorities.
