Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan on Thursday indicated that the Government would step in to resolve power crisis in the city.

Chavan's statement comes in the backdrop of Tata Power Company saying it would not accept state government's directive to provide 360 MW power to Reliance Infra till June 30 this year.

Following Tata Power Company's announcement there were reports that Mumbai suburbs would face power cuts.

"We are talking to both Reliance and Tata. The issues they have would be solved through discussion," Chavan told reporters here.

Chavan also assured that if necessary Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited would step in to the matter.

"As of now there will be no load-shedding in Mumbai and the people here would not face power crisis," Chavan said.
