When it comes to power outage warnings, India is one of the worst offenders.
According to data from a report by India’s Public Distribution System Corporation of India (PDSI), a whopping 91 percent of Indian households have no power for the past three days, the country’s largest electrical retailer, Reliance Industries said in a statement on Tuesday.
The state of Tamil Nadu, which is the nation’s most populous state, recorded the highest number of outages, at 45 percent, followed by Kerala, at 22 percent, Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh at 17 percent each, according to the report.
The other states in the country, which are the two most populous states in India, are Maharashtra and West Bengal, which have the lowest percentage of power out.
The report said that since March 16, power outfalls in the state have increased by 40 percent, while the total number of people without electricity fell by 9.6 percent.
