According to government order, power will not be cut at the divisional and district headquarters as well as feeders of concerning tehsils and rural areas on December 11 and 14, the days of polling, and December 15 and 17, the days of counting votes.
“Power will be supplied 24 hours at the places where counting of votes will take place,” said Energy Secretary SPS Parihar.
