Petrol pumps to be shut from Monday

The past week has been a nightmare, what with these six hour plus power cuts. At the workplace, power is provided by a genset. It runs on diesel, so as long as it is adequately supplied, there should be no issues. And that is where the difficulty lies ! There is  a huge problem procuring diesel from the fuel pumps, who refuse to sell diesel if you happen to be carrying those large jerry cans, which.

While I can understand they are being harassed by motorists who want to tank up, refusing to supply diesel is a pretty harsh move, and one that can virtually bring all activity to a shuddering halt, as almost all SMEs and even professionals use gensets that run on diesel.

No fixed hours for load shedding in Pune, says MSEDCL

The Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Ltd. (MSEDCL) has come up with a drastic solution to the power problem in the city.

Earlier, they had indulged in ‘salami-tactics’, increasing the load shedding time ‘slice by slice’, from two hours per day to almost six hours presently. However, now it is a no-holds barred scenario, with the MSEDCL declaring that load-shedding would be done ‘anytime’, ‘anywhere’, without adherence to any fixed schedule or location.
