Various power agencies in Gurgaon,including the Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam (HVPN),Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN),Town and Country Planning Departments,along with builders have been deliberating the issue of unscheduled powercuts in Gurgaon region.

According to officials,inadequate infrastructure provided by a number of builders is the main reason behind unscheduled powercuts in some areas of Gurgaon town. 

A joint survey,conducted by DHBVN,HVPN,DLF staff and representatives of the Town and Country Planning Department regarding deficiencies in electrical infrastructure in DLF colonies in Gurgaon,indicated that additional infrastructure,including 111.9 kilometre-long high tension lines,16.28 kilometre long low tension lines and distribution transformers of a capacity of 98.453 KVA costing Rs20 crore are required in DLF colonies.

DLF had planned and agreed to set 66 KV substations at three locations but only one substation has so far been constructed at Q-Block. Other developers like Unitech limited,APL Limited,Ambience Infrastructure (P) Ltd.,Sheetal International (P) Ltd.,and Vipul Infrastructure had also agreed to set up 66 KV substations which are also still awaited.
