Mumbai suffered a major power crisis on Monday in Maharashtra. After grid failure, the lights went off in many areas. By the time the news was written, the electricity had gone more than one and a half hours. Alam was that the lines (three) of the local trains had come to a standstill due to the power connection. The light was also switched on in hospitals, while the hearing of the High Court also affected it. However, the Energy Minister claimed that the staff is currently engaged in restoring electricity service. It will take 45 minutes to an hour to fix it.
Minister Nitin Raut told news agency ANI that power cut between Thane and Mumbai has been cut due to technical fault in Circuit-2 of Kalva-Padghe powerhouse. Our employees are mobilized and electricity will be restored in about an hour.
