Power Cut Master - Bangalore EB

In the past 6 years, I never seen this much power cut in Bangalore. Past 6 months I am seeing this issue growing. They used to cut the power for 1 hr in the morning and 1 hr in the evening. Why is it so? Is it due to power production shortage? Is the demand not calculated before and preparations are not done? I see the transformer near my house bursts with cracker sound so often. As a temporary measure Electricity Board corrects the problem and it repeats every second day. Why are we not able to install a transformer properly? Is it skill shortage? Two days back, overhead wire connecting transformer and electricity distribution pole connected to my house broke and it sparks like diwali sky rocket cracker. Generally I saw that kind of live wire sparks in films.

But how come there is very little power cut happened from the date parliament election announced till parliament election results? Is this just eye washing activity? Again after results, they started power cut for long hours. Even for very little rain it is happening so. We don't know the exact reason what is going on. And nobody in the surroundings question the department as either they have inverters or they used to it. It is totally irritating. I think Bangalore Electricity Board is the Power Cut Masters in the World.

No one is there to bell the cat. God only knows.
