Voltage Output: 220-240 volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second
Maharashtra is counted amongst the most industrially advanced states of
India. This is one of the main reasons why the state has a very good
electricity situation, with a stabilized voltage and almost non-existent
power cuts. As far as the voltage output in Maharashtra is concerned, it
is around 220-240 volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second. The
information about the electric current prevalent in the state is quite
important from the point of view of tourists coming from abroad.
This is because in case they are bringing along the electric
appliances, they need to make sure that they are compatible with the
voltage in the state. If by any chance there is a variation, usage of
voltage converters is advised. There are three types of converters
available in the market - resistor-network converters, transformers and
combination converters. The first ones work on 50-1600 watts and are
best for high voltage appliances.
The second ones support low voltage appliances, which can work on
50-100 watts. The combination converters, as the name suggest, are a
combination of the two. Other than voltage, foreign tourists should also
have knowledge about the plugs that can be used in the state. In
Maharashtra, sockets accept plugs with either two or three (arranged in
a triangle) round pins. In any other case, you should carry a plug
adapter with you.
