Acute shortage of electricity in Punjab

Presently, once again while living in Punjab, I am seeing acute shortage of electricity supply. People throughout Punjab are facing electricity cuts from 10 hours a day to 18 hours a day. Moreover, acute heat wave is making this situation even worst for people. In Punjab, it is very common to face such situation every year because Punjab lacks sufficient production of electricity for meeting present demand.

Punjab depends for electricity on neighbouring states and centre quota for completing demand in Punjab. Presently, production of electricity has decreased drastically because of decrease in water supply to major reservoirs in state and neighbouring states because of less or no rain. Two years back when present state government in Punjab came to power then they made numbers of claims and one claim among these claims was to provide adequate electricity supply to people.

However, present situation says something else and delay in monsoon has further increased this problem. Presently, we can only hope that present Punjab government will show good results on ground so that people of Punjab should not face such problems in future. Punjab government has some plans for increasing electricity production by constructing new electricity generation plants, however, it is very important to implement these programs in fast manner so that people can benefit of such plans soon.
