The announcement from State Finance Minister that the present three hour daily power cut will be reduced to one hour from today onwards, came as a sign of relief to people living in the city.
Earlier the three hour power cut was implemented into two spells of one and half hours daily. Now, the one hour power cut will be implemented in one spell.
The decision on reducing the duration of power cuts was made due to the drop in demand for power from agricultural sector as the Rabi season is coming to an end.
