MUMBAI, Sept 2 Large parts of India's financial
capital Mumbai were hit by power cuts on Tuesday, due to
technical issues at a Tata Power Company Ltd
electricity generation unit.
Due to the problems, Tata Power has switched off certain
feeders supplying power to some areas in Mumbai, said officials
for Brihanmumbai Electric Supply & Transport Undertaking (BEST),
which buys electricity from Tata Power.
Tata Power was not immediately available for comment.
The power cuts in Mumbai come amid concerns about wider
blackouts in India due to a shortage of coal and underlines the
challenge Prime Minister Narendra Modi faces in improving the
country's creaking infrastructure.
