Unannounced power cuts in rural areas
Increasing electricity consumption has become a headache for the power companies of the state. Electricity production has been affected due to reduced supply of coal in the state. Apart from this, the government has abolished 100 units of free electricity and fuel charges. Due to inclement weather, continuous power supply remains a challenge. In Sawai Madhopur, power cuts are being cut daily in the name of maintenance in rural areas.

According to the Electricity Corporation, about a month ago the electricity consumption in the district had increased by 40 percent, but due to rain in many districts it has now come down to 25 percent.
