No power cut in Odisha till April end

The state government has ruled out any power cut till the end of April this year, hoping to tide over any possible deficit through conserved hydro power and power banking. Odisha would be drawing 400 MW power from Delhi and Punjab through the power banking mode. The decision to refrain from load shedding was taken at a meeting held under the chairmanship of energy minister Pranab Prakash Das. The meeting took stock of the action plan prepared by the energy department to overcome power shortfall. Known to be a power surplus state, Odisha faced peak power shortage of 500 MW last year.
