    Hyderabad: The Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB) and the Telangana Electricity department clarified on Monday that there is no shortage of power supply or drinking water at Osmania University hostels. This clarification comes after the chief warden of the OU hostel falsely claimed a shortage of electricity and drinking water.

    The Electricity Department stated that the Osmania University campus receives continuous power supply from two dedicated 11KV feeders from the 33/11 KV Osmania University substation. Meter readings have confirmed uninterrupted power supply to the university campus.
