This situation, prevailing over many past years, not likely to improve any time sooner, during any of present or future ruling parties that are in reckoning, especially so called 'coalitions' (no alliance is committed to any national cause other than allying to dictats of party'). The tax-payers, paying thru nose (again salaried class) will keep suffering for erratic supplies; more in North/Central India (except Capital). The industry too has no option, except contributing to co-generation and except generation thru fossel fuel @ any cost by small and lower mid-sized units.
