Pune, 24th June 2023: In a sudden turn of events, several areas in Pune experienced power cuts and water logging today due to light rain. Neighborhoods such as Viman Nagar, Wadgaonsheri, Porwal Road, Mohammad Wadi, Undri, Kondhwa, Gokhale Nagar, Khadki, and various others were severely affected.


The most significant power outage occurred in Mohammad Wadi and Wagholi, leaving residents without electricity for a staggering seven hours. Despite ongoing efforts, the power supply in these areas is yet to be restored.



Unaware of the situation, numerous residents took to Twitter to express their concerns. Neeraj Sharma tweeted that half of the areas, including Viman Nagar and Nagar Road, had regained electricity, but the other half had been without power for over six hours. Another resident questioned whether this frequent occurrence during the first rainfall hinted at a worrisome pattern for the entire rainy season.


Nishikant Raut, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL), clarified to Punekar News that the power outage in Pune was not a scheduled event. Raut attributed the outages to the rainfall in the city. He assured the public that efforts were underway to restore electricity promptly



In response to the ongoing issues, a frustrated resident reminded the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) about a previous complaint filed a month ago that remains unresolved. The resident emphasized the urgency of the situation, highlighting the safety hazard caused by water logging on the roads. They questioned why taxes were being paid if the issues were not promptly addressed, while also tagging the PMC in their tweet.





The power outages and water logging in Pune due to the recent light rain have inconvenienced residents and raised concerns about the city’s preparedness for the upcoming rainy season.
