7-Hour-Long Daily Load-Shedding Begins in Meghalaya


The power supplier company in Meghalaya is going for a seven-hour daily load-shedding across the state from Sunday.

The outages are being carried out in three shifts on a rotational basis, a senior Meghalaya Electric Corporation Ltd (MeECL).

It is to be mentioned that the MeECL owes Rs 74.65 crore to Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd (PGCIL) as transmission charges, and it was not in a position to pay the dues due to extreme financial condition of the company.

“We expect that we will be able to end all our liabilities to the generating companies and transmission companies soon,” state’s Power Minister James Sangma said.
