Hyderabad: The industrial sector, which was expecting improved power supply and better policies after the state’s bifurcation, is once again in despair with power cuts having increased substantially. This has also led to production losses  going back to 30 percent.

Hyderabad’s domestic sector is currently experiencing up to six hours of power cuts. This also poses a  problem for the small and medium industries and the commercial sector, as power is supplied from the same feeders. As a result, the industries have to deal with six hour power cuts on a daily basis in addition to the one-day power holiday.

 

“Currently, the one day power holiday in TS is continuing since the bifurcation. Supply of power from domestic feeders results in a daily six-hour power cut. This affects  small, medium industries, and malls and shops,” said vice-president of FAPCCI (Federation of Andhra Pradesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry), V. Anil Reddy.

At least 80 per cent of the industries from undivided AP are located in and  TS (most around Hyderabad). “Running malls on backup power is costly. It increases operational costs by 30 to 40 per cent. This increase has been affecting commercial establishments since the last three months now,” said P. Venkatesh, a shopping mall manager.
