ITANAGAR, Sep 11: Headquarters of seven districts of eastern and central Arunachal Pradesh have been reeling under severe power crisis for three days due to a fault in a transmission line, a senior power department official said here on Wednesday.
Power tripped in the transmission line between Daporijo in Upper Subansiri district and Aalo in West Siang district at around 7.20 PM on Monday, transmission executive engineer Hibu Bama said.
Power services in the headquarters of Upper Subansiri, West Siang, East Siang, Lower Subansiri, Lepa Rada, Shi-Yomi and Lower Dibang Valley districts were affected, he said.
