Adani Power was established in 1996 as an energy trading company.  The power outage, which rarely occurs in the city, also comes at a time when many people in critical sectors such as financial services and information technology continue to work from home, which generally do not have backups. Western Railway said on Twitter that traffic between Churchgate and Borivili had been halted due to a “Tata Power Company network outage.” Services will resume once the traction power supply is restored, it was said. Maharashtra`s power minister, Nitin RAut, said power would be restored within the hour. “Circuit 1 of the GIS 400KV centre in MahaTransco`s Kalva-Padgha was repaired and maintained and the load was on Circuit 2. A technical problem in Circuit 2 led to power problems in Mumbai and Thane,” he said.

The company had requested additional costs for the purchase of fuels after Gujarat Mineral Development Corporation failed to deliver on its promise to supply local coal from Chhattisgarh`s Mogra-II coal block. Adani Power has been awarded short-term contracts to supply 6,100 megawatts (MW) of electricity in auctions by the Punjab government for a total of 7,000 MW. Although the rates mentioned by the company are not known, the sources said that the transactions were concluded with rates between 3.35 and 3.59 billion, slightly lower than the short-term prices discovered in recent months. Under a separate electricity chaining contract (AAE), Adani Mundra continues to supply 1,200 MW of electricity with coal imported into Gujarat.
Adani Power signed the revised AAE with the state, in line with the Supreme Court`s October 2018 ruling, which authorized a reduction in countervailing duties against an increase in coal interest in Indonesia. However, after taking into account the decline in world coal prices, Gujarat will revise the conditions of the supplementary AEA and calculate the tariff on the basis of new parameters. In a statement, Adani Electricity said there was a major power outage that affected the supply of most parts of Mumbai. “According to network security protocols, Adani Power System was able to maintain and fix the implementation capacity,” he said.
