New Delhi: The tall claims of the government to resolve the power crisis in New Delhi have fallen flat as the difference between the demand and supply remained 1000 mw for the 10th day in succession.

Due to this, the national capital was deprived of power supply for hours. The posh colonies of south Delhi were the most affected where frequent power cuts were reported. Due to power cuts, water supply was also affected and people had to face several difficulties.

In the backdrop of shortage of coal and water, situation remained grim at various power stations of Delhi which thereby had a toll on power generation.

Efforts were made to minimize the demand-supply difference by overdrawing power from the northern grid, still the gap remained at 600 mw.

To bridge the gap, power distribution companies had to resort to load shedding. Around 250 mw load shedding was done for three hours from 9am to 12 noon.

The BSES authorities said that the trend will continue for next two days.
