As Bangladesh faced a nation-wide blackout today, India's Power Grid Corp, which transmits power to that country, said the problem lies there.
A senior official of state-owned Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd (PGCIL), which manages electricity transmission lines in the country, said there is absolutely no problem on the Indian side.
"There is a problem with the Bangladesh sub-station resulting in non-drawal of power from Indian side," Power Grid's Executive Director (Operations) R P Sasmal told PTI.
The comments come in the backdrop of reports that the blackout in Bangladesh was caused by problems in transmission lines from India.
India supplies about 500 MW electricity to Bangladesh through two 400 kv transmission lines. The supply started late last year. Electricity is supplied to Bangladesh from NTPC plants.
"We have seen output from our sub-stations but there is no problem on our side on the sub-station and (transmission) line.
"The trip command was received for one of the two 400 kv lines from Bangladesh resulting in outage of one line. The other line is ideally charged," he said.
