NEW DELHI: India’s electricity supply fell for the fifth straight month in December, but declined at a slower pace than in November, provisional government data showed.

Power supply fell to 101.92 billion units in December, down 1.1 per cent from 103.04 billion units last year, an analysis of daily load dispatch data by state-run Power System Operation Corp Ltd showed.

Lower electricity supply could mean a fifth straight fall in power demand – linked by economists to a broader economic slowdown – as electricity deficit in India is marginal.
