Subject:      : Additional Regulatory Measures on Industrial Consumers.

To meet the Paddy Load, it has been decided to impose Additional Power Regulatory Measures on Industrial Consumers with immediate effect as under:

The timings of Weekly Off day will start from the end of Peak Load Restriction Hours of previous day and end at 08.00 Hours of day next to Weekly Off day already notified. For example consumers whose Weekly Off day at present is on 12.6.2009 ( Friday ), will now observe weekly off day starting from 22.30 Hours of 11.6.2009, for all Zones except Central Zone, Ludhiana and from 23.00 Hours of 11.6.2009 for Central Zone Ludhiana and ending at 08.00 Hours of 13.6.2009 (Saturday ) and so on for the months of June & July, 2009.

for all Zones except Central Zone, Ludhiana and from 20.00 Hours to 04.00 Hours of next day for Central Zone Ludhiana for the month of June & July, 2009.
