No power cut in Odisha till May 20

Much to the relief of people, the state government on Wednesday announced that there would be no power cut till May 20.
The decision was taken after a review meeting headed by energy minister Pranab Prakash Das to take stock of the energy scenario in the state.

"To meet the peak hour demand of around 4100 MW, the state government has decided to get 400 MW of power from Delhi and Punjab through power banking route. This was apart from generation of power from regular sources," Das told media persons after the meeting.

A meeting would be held on May 19 to take a further call on power cut situation in Odisha, he added.
