Crippling power cuts in India affected more than 300 million people on Monday, according to reports.

Grid failure struck New Delhi and most of northern India leaving people without power for hours in what has been described as one of the Asian superpower’s worst blackouts in a decade.

India’s Power Minister Sushilkumar Shinde is reported to have said a three-member panel will look into the failure of the northern grid.

The capital has recently faced protests on its industrial outskirts because of a swathe of power shortages.
