Typical to the countries in the Asian region, India too has a 230-volt, 50-hertz cycle power supply. Uttar Pradesh being a province of India has a same denomination. The home power supply is 230 volt across UP therefore it is only natural that electrical equipments are only equipped to run on 230 volt, 50 hertz supply.
There are quite a few problems that one faces in Uttar Pradesh as far
as power supply adaptability is concerned. There are two basic problems
that are faced by visitors from countries that have 110-volt power
supply. The first is the adaptability of the equipment and the second is
socket structure. For what may come a 110-volt appliances won't run on
the 230-volt power supply in Utter Pradesh. You will have to buy an
adapter to run these equipments. These adapters are readily available in
every other electric shop in all the major as well as minor towns of UP.
Buy a good one and avoid the locally made products. The one by Sony,
Philips and Anchor are considered among the bests in Uttar Pradesh.
The second problem is related to the electric supply sockets. Almost
all the North and South American countries along with a few Eastern
European nations manufacture electric equipments that have flat-pin
plugs against the cylindrical one used in the equipments manufactured by
the commonwealth countries such as India and Pakistan. To fix this
problem you have, cheap and readily available, socket adaptors. These
adaptors have two different sockets on its back that make it easy for
the people to use the flat-pin equipments.
