However, as the day progressed, power restoration efforts began on “war footing”. Trains have started to resume operations, beginning with CR's Harbour Line. The trains are carrying only essential services workers at present, which helped minimise the passenger inconvenience.
“Restoration work is in progress to bring a supply from the three hydro units and Trombay units once the MSETCL transmission lines are connected,” the Tata Power statement said.
Another official also said that it is a grid failure, and efforts are underway to restore power supply at the earliest with the help of Maharashtra State Electricity Transmission Company and Power Grid Corporation.
