Nilgiris: The incessant rain during the past few days in several parts of Nilgiris has severely affected the power supply to most places in the hill district.

Though 833 MW of power is generated from various dams here like Kundha, Upper Bhavani, Kethai, and Pykara, the frequent power cuts during the past three days in a majority parts of Nilgiris has upset the locals. Out of the 833 MW, only 73 MW is supplied in Nilgiris and the rest is distributed to other districts like Coimbatore, Erode, and Tirupur.

Local people have demanded that the District administration and TNEB should take necessary steps to provide uninterrupted power supply even during heavy spell of rains.
