New Delhi: Power supply to shopping malls in the national capital will be stopped during night after 10 PM, the Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung today ordered while announcing a slew of measures to address the power crisis.  During a meeting to review the power situation in Delhi, Jung also directed that people be informed in advance about power cuts in their concerned areas.

“Whenever there is less supply of power, the power distribution companies will announce a schedule informing people about the timings when electric supply will be cut.  Discoms are working out a schedule which will be shared with the public,” an advisory from the office of the Lieutenant Governor (LG) said.

“Power supply to malls will not be available after 10 PM.  High mast halogen lamps in the streets, which consume more power, will be switched off during night peak hours to conserve energy,” it said.

All government offices, including Delhi Secretariat, and universities and colleges have been asked to switch off air conditioners between 3:30 and 4:30 PM to conserve power during day peak hours.

“This does not include emergency services and critical institutions such as hospitals etc,” the LG said in a statement.
