At 9.04am, the power from overhead wires got switched off owing to a failure at Kalyan, Igatpuri and Lonavala. The supply was restored by 9.07am, but led to detention of a many trains.

On the harbour line, the PL-32 Panvel-CSMT train was held up between Sewri and Cotton Green over a technical problem. As crowds increased and complaints came in, two special local trains were started between Kurla and CSMT.
