For the backup, alternative power supply network was also identified to ensure uninterrupted power supply in case of any issue with the main network. Maintenance of alternative network was also undertaken proactively. All planned outages for the locality scheduled during the period of the game were preponed and required work was completed proactively.

It was also ensured that Odisha Power Transmission Corporation Limited and TPCODL will jointly resolve the situation to ensure uninterrupted power supply.
The company also ensured that adequate stock of essential spare parts, tools and equipment including transformers, switchgears etc. are maintained to minimize the restoration time of power interruptions.
