Mumbai, Lagging Shanghai, Faces First Power Cuts in a Century

Mumbai, India's commercial capital, may have its first daily blackouts in a century next month because the government failed to plan for soaring demand.
Offices and households may lose electricity for 30 minutes a day starting mid-April, said Lalit Jalan, executive director at Reliance Energy Ltd., the city's main supplier.
"We're trying very hard but this looks inevitable," Jalan said in an interview on March 13 in Mumbai."We're approaching every supplier, every state in India to sell us spare power for the city, but everyone has a deficit."
