India’s Northern Grid trips again, several states suffer blackout

New Delhi: Indian Northern Grid tripped again on Tuesday for the second consecutive day, leading to power cuts in the national capital and several others states.
Reports said several areas in Delhi suffered blackout.

The Delhi Metro also encountered power outage, leading to suspension of operation at several places. Some reports even claimed that several trains got stalled between stations with people stuck inside.
There were also reports of power failure from Chandigarh in Punjab, Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh and parts of Haryana.
On Monday, seven states in the northern region saw power trip off at 2.32 am due to a major breakdown in the Northern Grid - an interconnected transmission network that delivers electricity from various power generating stations to distribution utilities.
The power failure had hit rail, Metro and road-traffic operations, as well as services at hospitals and civic bodies.
Apart from the national capital Delhi, supplies were badly affected in Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Jammu and Kashmir.
