    Amid power crisis gripping Karnataka, BESCOM assures power to industries

    Karnataka is facing electricity deficit due to deficient rainfall and drought

    Power consumption in state rose from 10,000 MW to 16,000 MW in October

Amid a power crisis gripping Karnataka, BESCOM, the power utility of Bengaluru, reassured industrial entities that they would receive uninterrupted power supply to sustain their operations.

Following concerns raised by industrial representatives about the potential impact of the ongoing electricity shortage on their activities, BESCOM, on October 17, urged them not to worry and guaranteed continuous power supply within its jurisdiction.

Gaurav Gupta, the Additional Chief Secretary of the Energy Department, emphasized in a statement that he conducted a virtual meeting with industry representatives, underscoring the commitment to ensure uninterrupted power supply for industrial operations falling under BESCOM’s purview.

Karnataka is grappling with a significant electricity deficit due to deficient rainfall and drought in various districts. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah also recently acknowledged that power consumption in the state had escalated from 10,000 MW to 16,000 MW in October, primarily driven by heightened electricity usage by farmers for their pump sets due to inadequate rainfall this year.

Against this backdrop, industrial bodies voiced apprehensions about potential disruptions to manufacturing and industrial activities. Gupta, along with Mahantesh Bilagi, the Managing Director of BESCOM, allayed their fears by assuring them that comprehensive arrangements have been made to ensure uninterrupted power supply to all industrial zones under BESCOM’s jurisdiction.
