MISLEADING! APEPDCL issues a press release and denies rumors of scheduled power cuts!

A mischievous misleading message has been circulating on social media regarding scheduled Power Cuts and creating a point of panic in public. The state Power Distribution Unit, Eastern Power Distribution Company of Andhra Pradesh Ltd., has released a press statement regarding this.

The Chairman & Managing Director of The Eastern Power Distribution Company of Andhra Pradesh Ltd.(APEPDCL) K. Santosh Rao has appealed to consumers not to believe any rumors circulating on social media about power cuts. The department has taken notice of social media rumors on the emergency load relief (power cut) and has ensured that this is just a misleading rumor. The Users need not panic and there were no interruptions in the power supply as the state government was supplying coal reserves required for power generation.

Any information on the power supply situation will be officially communicated to consumers through print and electronic media rather than through social media.
