Blackout triggers rush for fuel, ATMs in Vizagatozinfo.com, in vizag, in visakhapatnam, in Andhra Pradesh

Blackout triggers rush for fuel, ATMs News Vizagatozinfo.com - Blackout triggers rush for fuel, ATMs in Visakhapatnam - Blackout triggers rush for fuel, ATMs in vizag - Blackout triggers rush for fuel, ATMs in visakhapatnam

The blackout imposed by the EPDCL following flash strike by the electricity employees caused utter chaos leading to traffic jam and a mad rush at petrol bunks and ATMs.

Panic buying of petrol and diesel caused traffic jam near the bunks. Some of the outlets of HPCL, IOC and BPCL put up no-stock boards. Hundreds of ATMs went dry after they were filled with cash by banks on Sunday.

“I had to go the counter to draw cash by a cheque as a ‘no cash’ placard greeted me at the ATM at ICICI branch, MVP Colony on Monday,” Murali Choudhary, a government employee from Odisha, who came on medical work to the city, said.

Fuel filling at oil outlets was affected as the workers of 1800 oil tankers went on 72-hour strike from Friday in support of Samaikyandhra. There is speculation among various quarters that due to the agitation by various Joint Action Committees, the fuel supply not only to the bunks in the city but also those located in Odisha, Chattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh, which depend on refinery in the city for supply, would be severely affected. However, the HPCL refinery officials maintained that their production was not affected.

With streets lights not getting power traffic chaos were witnessed at main thoroughfares. Traffic cops found it difficult to regulate the traffic at Jagadamba, Asilametta, Satyam Centre and other busy junctions.

The blackout had paralysed the operations in the IT Park at Rushikonda and Special Economic Zone, Duvvada.

Symbiosys Technologies CEO Naresh Kumar said some of them had to operate with diesel generators. NASSCOM regional director Bidhan Kankate asked Mr. Naresh Kumar, vice-president of Rushikonda IT Park Association, to keep him in loop about the situation as ATMs and fuel bunks were going out of stocks.
