The data collected so far reveals that timings are being rotated across different parts of town, but the strategy of power cuts and the duration for a day have not yet been fixed.

 The only confirmed number so far is that the power cut duration during any day shall not be lesser than 8 hours. Power cuts in the dark have been considered a security hazard and are being given as 45minute or 30minute cuts.
