Patiala, October 15

After a spurt in the demand for inverters and generators due to irregular supply of electricity caused by alleged coal shortage, the situation has returned to normal.

Shopkeepers said they witnessed an increased demand for a few days, but the situation has returned to normal as the proper supply has been restored.

Power cuts were observed for a few days only. We did not see any increase in the demand for generators. A shop owner

“The demand for generator related services go up every time electricity cuts are witnessed. This time as well, the demand shot up within a day. Mostly generators lay defunct for during normal power supply a long time, consequently we are still getting orders for repair works,” said a dealer at the Tractor market.

Rajiv Madan, who runs Madan Power Solutions near the YPS School, said there were frequent power cuts in the city few days ago. “We sell silent generators. Inquiries for these had increased as the power cuts peaked. Now, the demand has subsided as power cuts have gone down.”

The owners of Free India Electric Corporation, a shop selling all kinds of generators, said: “Power cuts were observed for a few days only. We did not see any increase in the demand for generators,” they said. — TNS
