A massive powercut has caused disruption in India's western city of Mumbai at a time when the country's energy sector is being reportedly threatened by a lack of coal supplies.

The powercut hit a large swathe of the central and suburban parts of the city.

Utility company Tata Power said a problem at one of its power stations led to the blackout.

In July 2012 a massive power cut had affected more than 300 million people in 5 north Indian states.

Power cuts are a common occurrence in Indian cities because of a fundamental shortage of power and an ageing grid. The chaos caused by such cuts has led to protests and unrest on the streets.
