BANGALORE: There was no power supply for more than 55 minutes due to technical problems in Sarakki station, causing power cuts in Richmond Road and Shantinagar and surrounding areas on Monday.
Sources from BESCOM said it was a minor glitch at the sarakki station which was sorted out in short time.
Residents of the area, however, complained of power shutdown for almost an hour.
Officials said that the initial power cut might have had a cascading effect on local areas leading to power cuts in regular intervals.
With the city now recovering from regular power shutdowns, there is still irregular powercuts which according to the officials are being monitored closely.
“This is will not continue for a long time.
We are improving our reaction time with each problem that we face,” said an official.
