"Some of the states have confirmed their participation while some are yet to confirm," a Power Ministry official said.
Northern, Eastern and North-Eastern grids had collapsed on Tuesday afternoon hitting power supply to 21 states. The states affected included Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, West Bengal, Chhattisgarh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha, Sikkim, Meghalaya, Manipur and Assam, besides Union Territory of Chandigarh.
The reason for grid failure is, however, yet to be ascertained. This three grids collapsed within 24 hours of the Northern Grid getting restored following a failure on Monday.
The Power Ministry has set up a three-member panel, headed by Central Electricity Authority (CEA) Chairperson A S Bakshi to look into the tripping of grids. The committee is expected to submit its report in a fortnight.
