Grid Failure- North India Black Out

Today due to the failure of the northern grid, the second largest grid supplying electricity to the country – whole India slipped into darkness.

In the night at about 2.30, electricity went off in 9 states, including Delhi. Electricity was restored after only 12 in the morning, in selected areas. 80% of the areas in Delhi got power by 3 in the afternoon. Northern Railway was also affected by this, as nearly 300 trains, including Rajdhani, Shatbadi and Duronto, were severely affected were disrupted. Traffic was back to normal by 9 in the morning.

    Withing 24 hours of power restoration three grids failed pushing the whole of North India into darkness yesterday. Almost 19 states suffered from the black-out. Trains, Hospitals, Metro. By late in the evening, the north-eastern grid was fully up and running. The Northern grid was running at 75% capacity and the Eastern at 40%.
