Meghalaya will completely get rid of load shedding within the next 24 hours.

This was claimed by Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad Sangma.

“Happy to announce that Load Shedding will be removed completely within the next 24 Hrs across Meghalaya,” Conrad Sangma said.

Chairman cum Managing Director of the ailing Meghalaya Energy Corporation Limited (MeECL) also informed that “there will not be any load shedding in the State”.

“I am happy to inform you all that with the assistance from the State Government and after obtaining a firm repayment commitment from MeECL, the Power Grid has withdrawn the regulation notice with immediate effect. In layman words, there will not be any load shedding in the State. Thank you all for understanding and being with us in these tough times,” CMD of MeECL said.

Meghalaya Power Minister James Sangma said, “I’m happy to inform that there will not be any load shedding in the State with immediate effect. I would like to thank our CM Conrad Sangma for his assistance in securing a repayment commitment on behalf of MeECL. Thank you all for your patience.”

This comes as a major relief for the consumers in Meghalaya as they had to face power outage for a total of 7 hours daily since Sunday.

The MeECL on Sunday informed that a total of seven-hour daily load-shedding would take place across the State.

The MeECL owes Rs 74.65 crore to Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd (PGCIL) as transmission charges, and it was not in a position to pay the dues due to extreme financial condition of the company.
