Of last year's blackouts....

UP was identified as one of the main states that had overdrawn from the northern grid and sparked one of the world’s biggest blackouts on July 30 and 31 last year.
The grid collapse had plunged the entire northern, eastern and the northeastern regions into darkness for up to 24 hours.
The Centre had read the riot act to the states that were held responsible. Since then, the states are reported to be largely sticking to grid discipline. Unable to pay for additional power from merchant plants, UP has been regulating power supply in the state for 6-8 hours a day.
