Ambani, Tata 'Islands' Shrug Off Grid Collapse
Abdul Qasim, an accountant who works at Tata Motors Ltd. (TTMT), wasn’t aware of the world’s biggest power outage until he finished work in the Indian city of Jamshedpur.
He didn’t have to go far to learn about the blackout. Qasim broke his Ramadan fast with his family under candle light. Barely 10 kilometers (6 miles) away, truck production at the Tata Motors factory located in the city continued with minimal disruptions even as the state-owned national grid collapsed on July 31 knocking out supply to 640 million people.
