Post Power cuts up to 4 hours imposed in punj


Chandigarh October 3:
Sudden shoot up in demand from urban sector and delay in harvesting of paddy crop have forced Punjab State Electricity Board (PSEB) to again impose power cuts up to four hours in the state.
After utilizing all its resources, PSEB has been able to supply 1250 lakh units (LU) per day against the total demand of 1400-1450 LU per day, facing a daily shortage of 150-200 LU, senior official of PSEB said. PSEB officials attribute the unexpected rise in demand for power to the irrigation required by paddy growers and increase in temperature during the past few days.
“Since harvesting of paddy crop has still not got into full swing in the state, farmers are still demanding six hours supply of power to irrigate their late varieties crop including basmati, resulting in shooting up of the demand for power,” said an official.
Punjab State Electricity Board expects that the demand for power from paddy growers would remain till October 20 as this year the sowing of paddy crop was delayed by the state government in order to eliminate the practice of early transplantation of the crops to save underground water.
