Mumbai Trains Partially Restored Amid Outage, Commuters Walk On Tracks”

Power has since been restored to much of the city, officials said.

Maharashtra's Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has ordered a probe into the power cut. "As per grid safety protocols, Adani Power System has been able to sustain and islanded", the tweet further added. The Brihanmumbai Electricity Supply and Transport (BEST), which is responsible for supplying power to Mumbai, has confirmed the development.

One of the Mumbai distributors, BEST said the power supply was "interrupted due to TATA's incoming electric supply failure" at around 10.15 a.m.

According to sources, there is multiple tripping of lines and transformer (Kalwa-padghe and Khargar ICTs) supplying power to Mumbai system. Commissioner, Iqbal Singh Chahal, has asked all the hospitals to keep diesel generator sets ready in case the power outage in the city lasts more than two hours. "It shall be resumed as soon as traction power supply is restored", Western Railway tweeted.

Adani Electricity in a tweet said, the company is now supplying around 385 MW to critical services in Mumbai through AEML Dahanu generation.

The outage affected the entire city and suburbs including neighbouring Thane, Navi Mumbai and other parts of Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) leaving India's financial capital paralysed for more than four hours. "Our staff is working on it and power will be restored in an hour or 45 minutes", he had said.

"AEML System experienced grid disturbance due to fault outside of it". Please bear with us as we await Maharashtra grid restoration.

The power failure didn't have an impact on trading at both the National Stock Exchange (NSE) and the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), either.

A massive power outage was experienced in parts of Mumbai on Monday and that gave way to several memes inspired by Bollywood films featuring Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan and other superstars.

"Restoration work is in progress to bring supply from the 3 Hydro units and Trombay units once the MSETCL (Maharashtra state electric transmission company) transmission lines are connected", the Tata Power statement said.

The power outage, which is a rare occurring in the city, also comes at a time when many people across critical sectors such as financial services and information technology continue to work from home which typically do not have backups.
