The Confederation of Indian Industry puts the loss to business in the hundreds of millions of dollars, though the financial center of Mumbai, and Bangalore and Hyderabad in the south were not affected. Government bureaucracy has prevented new power plants from coming online to keep up with India’s growing—and power-hungry—affluent population.
