Nawabshah facing acute power crisis

The unabated power outages have critically affected commercial and non-commercial activities playing havoc with business community and people at homes. 

As a daily routine power supply goes off with the start of business and office hours and returns when offices are closed and workers start winding up at the end of working hours. 

The huge generators installed at banks continue running all the day giving rise to already aggravated environmental pollution. 

The main victims of load-shedding are the students appearing at the Hyderabad Education Board’s annual examination. Under a growing hot weather they find it next to impossible to make preparations. 

Whenever the electricity supply office is contacted, the usual reply comes that it is routine load-shedding, it is breakdown, it is shutdown or last but not least work is in progress on technical fault and the end result remain the same that you have to live with no electricity. 

On the other hand people have started switching to generators, Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) systems or solar panel systems to ward off total collapse of business activities.
