Oxygen generators to be set up across Lucknow & all UP districts in a bid to supplement 02 stocks!

In a bid to augment oxygen supplies in Uttar Pradesh, two wings of the state machinery have come forward and joined hands to set up oxygen generators in each of the state's 75 districts. As per reports, the excise and sugar industry and sugarcane development department of the UP government, will be installing such oxygen production equipment throughout the territory. Reportedly, the intervention has already been initiated in more than 25 districts while the project is underway at other places.

Move towards enhanced supplies of oxygen throughout the state

As per reports, the installation work is either complete or nearing completion in more than 10 districts. With the oxygen generators established at the sugar mills or the centres of the Excise Department, hospitals and medical centres encompassing around 35-45 beds will be benefitted from an uninterrupted supply of oxygen. Reportedly, the choice of the hospitals would be based on the collective discretion of the DM and the CMO.

According to reports, the project at each centre is being financed by a sum of nearly ₹50-60 lakhs and Air India will deliver the related equipment to the concerned areas. Once these plans are extensively implemented, the state stands assured with an amplified supply of oxygen across all its districts.
