Local meteorologists said the heat was a result of north-westerly dry and hot winds from Rajasthan state, which shares a border with Pakistan.

In some areas of New Delhi there have been power cuts of up to 10 hours a day as the electricity grid struggled to cope with the demand from millions of air conditioners.

Government urged people to drink water and stay indoors during the hottest hours of the day to avoid heat stroke.
