Jaipur: Power supply has been restored in some parts of Rajasthan, including capital Jaipur, after remaining disrupted since morning due to the collapse of the Northern Grid.

Power transmission was restored in Jaipur, Jodhpur, Bikaner, Nagaur and some other parts and the situation would further improve in few hours, Director, Power Trading, P S Chandelia said.

"We have recovered 1000 MW from two units so far and are lighting up other units to restore power," the official said.

"Rajasthan is among the northern states where power supply from northern grid has been stopped for the last few hours due to a fault which occurred because of overdraw. Efforts are being made to restore power supply at least in divisional headquarters," he said.
The official said that due to rainfall last night, demand for power has decreased and supply from units in the state may improve by the evening.
