Erratic power cuts in Delhi-NCR to hit SMEs production

Industrial units in Delhi-NCR, particularly SMEs, are on the verge of closure due to unprecedented power cuts and voltage fluctuations and their production is likely to be affected by 60 per cent, industry body, ASSOCHAM said on Wednesday.

Industrial units in Delhi-NCR, particularly SMEs, are on the verge of closure due to unprecedented power cuts and voltage fluctuations and their production is likely to be affected by 60 per cent, industry body, ASSOCHAM said on Wednesday.

The frequent power cuts, especially in Ghaziabad, Noida, Gurgaon, Faridabad, Greater Noida, Bahadurgarh, Sonipat etc. have caused their industrial units loose 50 per cent of their planned production in the last two months and if this trend is not arrested, these units in the region would loose their production to an extent of 60 per cent, revealed ASSOCHAM in a press release.

D S Rawat, Secretary General, ASSOCHAM, said, “Already their production has been reduced to the extent of 50 per cent and the competitiveness of SMEs will severely be impacted. So, there is an urgent need to strengthen existing power distribution infrastructure in NCR Industrial estate.”

Non-availability of power supply for upto 12-15 hours a day has upset the production schedules and if it remains unchanged, the resultant loss in industrial production could surpass 60 per cent in Gurgaon Industrial unit. The other units that might lose their clientage include BPO, KPO and other services sector, the release said.

“The worst affected are the medium and small units that rely on grid and use mostly small and inefficient diesel generating sets as backup. If corrective measures are not taken, the power situation would further aggravate,” Rawat added.

The ASSOCHAM has mooted a unified power authority for the NCR which will bring uniformity in power supply and power tariff within the region.
