R Basuri, Chief Engineer (Chandrapura) of the Damodar Valley Corporation (DVC) said several units had been hit in the wake of the failure of North-East Grid, resulting in power breakdown in many parts of Jharkhand and neighbouring West Bengal. Mezia, Durgapur and Bokaro thermal power units and the Maithon hydel unit are under the DVC. Efforts were on to restore power till the filing of this report. Jharkhand State Electricity Board spokesman P K Srivastav said power supply in Ranchi was restored after the Power Grid Corporation of India Limited provided 175 MW to the board. "We are trying to generate power through our two units — Tenughat Vidyoot Nigam Limited and Patratu Thermal Power Station," he said. Power situation in the DVC thermal power plants, which was almost normal till 2 pm, tripped after failure of the Eastern Grid, said Sanjay Kumar Singh, general secretary of the Central Committee of DVC Officers' Forum. Power generation came to nil as DVC all units in Bokaro, Chandrapura, Maithon and Panchet tripped following the collapse.
