'The factory output on Sundays is typically low'

Power-starvation, with ‘captive’ denied

That power shortages cripple the industry is no news. But it may come as a surprise to many that the power-starved industrial units have been prevented from using their captive power facilities on the designated days of weekly holiday.
“We have been instructed by the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board not to use generators on Mondays, the new ‘official’ holiday from last month, instead of our usual Sundays,” informs Mr D. Sundar, Managing Director, Mahalakshmi Tools and Machinery Pvt Ltd, Chennai. He has a unit in Padi.
