Hyderabad: People in both states continue to suffer longer power cuts than what is usual for this time of the year due to scheduling issues between the two states.

AP has complained to the APERC that Telangana is not making hydel plants available for scheduling.

The internal battle between the two states continues to be played at all levels. Also, coal  that was allotted from Madhya Pradesh and Odisha to undivided AP requires 50-50 sharing between the two states,  which has become a difficult task.

The 1600 MW  Krishnapatnam project in Nellore, which is nearing completion, was a Special Purpose Vehicle  created by  APPDCL in united AP. 

The first unit is generating power and though it is yet to stabilise, both sides are already fighting over the ‘infirm’ power being generated.

The scheduling on both sides is suffering despite the deficit being around 25 to 30 mu in each state.
