Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) is enforcing a daily 11-hour power cut from Thursday.

Earlier, the consumers were facing a nine-hour load-shedding a day.

"We had extra power cut in few groups to balance the supply," Sher Singh Bhat, Director of the System Operation Department of NEA said. According to the NEA, the power cut hours have been increased as hydropower projects are generating less electricity due to receding water levels in the rivers. All the hydropower projects in the country, except one, are built on run-of-river model.
