The Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has decided to hike load shedding by 71 hours a week effective from Saturday.
With this new schedule, power will go off up to 10.15 hours a day in average.As per the earlier schedule, the daily power-cut was limited to eight hours a day and 56 hours a week.
According to the NEA the load-shedding hours will go up as the water level in the rivers has decreased and those power houses destroyed by the earthquake have not yet come into operation. Besides, there is an increasingly high demand of electricity, resulting in the excessive load-shedding in the system.

* Effective from December 19, 2015.
* Loadshedding will take place on the given time inside the Kathmandu Valley and 5 minutes after the given time outside the Valley.
