Oxygen tankers to be tracked & monitored via GPS in Mumbai & other Maha districts

250 vehicles are equipped with GPS devices to assure a hastened process of delivery.

With an objective to ensure better regulation of oxygen supplies in the state, the Maharashtra Transport Department has partnered with the Federation of Automobile Dealers Association (FADA) for an inventive project. Under this initiative, GPS devices have been installed in 250 oxygen tankers commuting across the state. Through this intervention, the Transport Department is maintaining a vigilant check on the movement of vehicles via a unified dashboard at the Transport Commissioner's Office.


An initiative to consolidate grip over oxygen transport system

The latest scheme has been worked out after FADA State Chairperson, Amar Jatin Sheth, and Transport Commissioner, Avinash Dhakane, called a meeting recently, to deliberate upon the current requirements. There, the Transport Commissioner suggested the measure to fit GPS devices for better tracking of oxygen containers. Taking the thought further, FADA associated with MOBO to materialise the plans.

This project has been implemented at a cost of ₹10 lakhs with the help of technical assistance from MOBO. According to the FADA president, the present development shall equip the administration with an amplified control over the transportation vehicles, furthering a hastened process of delivery.

A step ahead towards securing the lives of COVID patients

Through fast and regulated movements of vehicles carrying oxygen, the medical necessity will be delivered on time to provide quick relief for critical COVID patients. It is expected that a larger count of lives will be saved with this initiative supported by FADA.

Being one of the hardest-hit states in the country, Maharashtra is facing an unprecedented demand for medical supplies. Though the situation shows signs of improvement, the overburdened healthcare infrastructure of the state and the swelling demand for oxygen require swift and streamlined measures.
