MHA coordinating lifting of high-capacity oxygen tankers from Singapore, UAE by IAF transport aircraft



NEW DELHI: The home ministry on Friday said it was coordinating lifting of high-capacity oxygen tankers from countries like Singapore and UAE by Indian Air Force (IAF) transport planes, in order to augment availability of tankers for the movement of oxygen. It has also asked all the states and Union Territories to ensure adequate security of lorries transporting medical oxygen and make provisions for exclusive corridors for such transportation, treating the lorries on par with ambulances.


The steps were in line with decisions taken at a meeting chaired by home minister Amit Shah on Friday to review the Covid situation in the country with particular focus on ensuring uninterrupted supply of medical oxygen in the affected states/UTs. As part of measures outlined by Shah, the home ministry on Friday wre to all the states/UTs to direct district collectors/deputy commissioners to list all the plants situated in their district, in which different types of oxygen is generated, along with their installed capacity. They were also asked to take action to revive those plants which are lying closed. “These efforts will ensure ready availability of oxygen at the district level, besides supply of medical oxygen from usual channels,” the home ministry said in a press release.




As per MHA, an expert group is optimising and rationalising the allocation of oxygen to various states/UTs kee in view the active cases and to reduce time for movement of medical oxygen. While the supply of oxygen for industrial purposes was prohibited on April 18, barring for a few essential sectors, the ministry on Friday said steps were now being taken to further reduce consumption of industrial oxygen by industries.
