Recovering from India's worst blackout

POWER supplies have been largely restored in India after its worst blackout, which left hundreds of millions of people across more than half the country without electricity.

The blackout, which lasted for well over 10 hours, began at 1.04pm (1734 AEST) on Tuesday and affected 19 states as well as the capital New Delhi, paralysing rail and road transport.

In a statement late Tuesday the state-run Power Grid Corp, which controls the country's transmission network, said electricity had been fully restored in New Delhi and the northeastern region.

Power had also been restored in up to 82 per cent in the northern region, and 65 per cent in the eastern region, it said.

Officials said the power grid serving the north of the country had collapsed in the afternoon, following a similar shutdown on Monday disrupted transport services and water supplies.
