Mumbai’s Divisional Railway Manager informed that local train services have been disrupted over Western Line due to a power outage and expressed regret over the inconvenience to commuters. However, minutes later, the Western Railway informed that Mumbai Central to Vile Parle line has been restored.

The Central Railway also reported that power supply had tripped momentarily on Harbour and Mainline, affecting trains between 9.49 to 9.52 AM. Trains are running on all corridors now, it added.

Power outages in Mumbai – the commercial capital, and its satellite towns are less frequent as compared to other areas in the state. This is because the western power grid that serves these areas is designed to supply efficient electricity 24×7 to cater to the needs of the nation’s financial capital. Such a major power outage across Mumbai and peripheral areas was last witnessed on October 12, 2020.
