There are many aspects to this issue than just to blame and individual or entity, below are just a few I could think of and there could be more
1) Out of whack ratio between Indian population and electricity production/distribution
2) Power grabbing/ power theft
3) Lack of infrastructure (old grid and controls)
4) Corrupt/incompetent authorities (Like controllers / politicians)
5) careless attitude, (Aapna kya jata hai) by every one in cumulative thus causing a catastrophic failure.

The report clearly mentions that the power outage was due to load from various states which the grid could not handle, the simplest thing to do would have been cut off the components which are draining the energy and keep the rest alive, but that also depends on lots of factors, first if there is such a provision to identify and disconnect a sub grid (and to what recision?, House/street/zone/Pincode,town/city/state?) second action takers, who should have acted and manually brought the draining unit ...more

Given the senario - present available technology needs upgadration - inputs both in technology upgradation and expertise in personale handling the upgraded technology needs the attention of power sector both in state and central govt agencies - from thermal to hydel to nuclear energy - to harness the vast water resources for hydel power and vast technical available expertise towards nuclear power plants - solution are there but no initiative to invest in power sector particularly to completion of river projects e.g. polavaram project over godavari in andhra pradesh - opinions differ
