Mumbai - A power outage left large swathes of India's financial capital Mumbai without electricity for hours Tuesday, a leading utility company said, at a time when the country's energy sector is facing turmoil.
Tata Power said the tripping of a unit at one of its power stations in Mumbai reduced the supply at 09.45am (06:15 SA time) to various central and suburban parts of the city, with the problem yet to be resolved by early afternoon.
“We are working towards an early resolution and will ensure power supply to these areas at the earliest,” an emailed statement said.
“We would like to reiterate Tata Power's commitment to providing reliable and 24X7 quality power to the city of Mumbai.”
India's starved power sector is struggling to produce enough electricity to meet rising demand, with blackouts common in large parts of the country.
