The central government has also adopted the model implemented by the Government of Uttar Pradesh (UP) regarding oxygen supply (Oxygen Crisis). In this regard, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has mandated the installation of vehicle location tracking devices in oxygen containers, tankers and other vehicles. Proper monitoring and safety of these tankers will be ensured through GPS. It will also be seen that there is no diversion or delay.
In mid-April, CM Yogi inaugurated a digital platform called ‘Oxygen Monitoring System for UP’ after Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath ordered technical support for increasing oxygen utilization in the second wave of Corona. This platform has been prepared in collaboration with the Food Safety and Drug Administration, Medical Education Department, Medical Health and Family Welfare Department, Transport and Home Department of the state. For this, a web portal link has been created, which is used by the officers and employees associated with the oxygen supply chain. Also, the oxygen tanker was also connected to the GPS based system, so that their real time location can be detected.
