By load shedding we mean the disruption of electric supply. It occurs when the generation of power is less than the demand. Thus when demand is greater but supply is less, it causes disruption of electric supply. Such a situation badly affects our life because modern life is greatly dependent on electricity. Most electronic goods are run by electricity. Almost all the communities for our daily use are produced in the factories which are run only with the help of electricity. So mills, factories, vehicles, shops hospitals, educational institutions cannot run without the supply of electricity. The productions in mills factories are hampered if there is no supply of electricity. Thus, load shedding affects our economic growth. Load shedding affects our economic growth and causes untold sufferings to our day to day life. Of course there are causes of load shedding. With the growth of population as well as urbanization, demand of electricity has increased a lot whereas production has not increased accordingly. So there occurs serious gap between demand and supply, as a result of which load shedding occurs frequently in a day. In order to solve the problem there is no alternative to generation of power more and more. Govt. mast take proper strategy to prevent load shedding or at least keep it in a tolerable level.
