Barring 6 states and Chandigarh, India to turn power surplus this fiscal

Most parts of the country will have surplus power availability in the current financial year thanks to higher electricity generation, the Central Electricity Authority said. The apex power sector planning body said in a report that in 2017-18, there will be anticipated energy surplus of 8.8 per cent and peak-hour surplus of 6.8 per cent.

While the eastern region will be able to meet its demand almost in full, other four regions will have surplus power varying from 3 per cent to 13 percent.
