The worst affected areas:
Sectors 83, 84 and 108, Noida Expressway, Dadri and Surajpur. Industrial sectors faced 12-13 hour power cut.
The transmission department had fixed the disrupted link temporarily by Thursday so as to restore power supply to the city. The re-installation of the tower will be undertaken on Sunday June 28, 2015. UPPTCL (Uttar Pradesh Power Transmission Corporation Ltd) has decided to cut power supply from sector 129 substation completely from 4am to 6pm on Sunday for the reinstalling work.
If the weather conditions permit the work would be completed by Sunday evening otherwise it may extend to Monday (another 8hrs of power cut estimated). The power supply could be affected on Sunday, but residential sectors would be provided electric supply temporarily from Sector 20 substation by PVVNL (Pashchimanchal Vidyut Vitran Nigam Ltd). The industries would be closed on Sunday relieving the demand pressure on power supply in Noida. Industries consume 200-300mVA of power daily.
