    Grid failure paralyzes most of Bangladesh for 6 hours

    October 5, 2022 - Dhaka Tribune


      Millions of people were left without electricity in most of Bangladesh, except some parts in Rangpur, after a transmission line tripped somewhere in the eastern part of the country on Tuesday.

      The source of the outage was likely in the districts east of the Jamuna River, according to officials at the Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB) and the Power Grid Company of Bangladesh (PGCB).

      All power plants tripped one after another and the electricity supply went off in Dhaka, Chittagong, Sylhet, Barisal, and Mymensingh divisions at 2:05pm. Only a few districts in Rangpur division were unaffected, said a top official of PGCB.
