NITI Aayog praises UP's oxygen supply model as Triple-T mantra set an example for the country
Uttar Pradesh is the first state to implement an online monitoring system for the supply of oxygen.
Lucknow: The second wave of Coronavirus is very dangerous. Now, better management and technology to deal with the problem of oxygen supply also opened new avenues. When the country was going through a crisis of oxygen, Uttar Pradesh took the step which is also questioning the policy of other states.
Triple T Mantra:
The policy itself has also been stamped on this. The 'Oxygen Monitoring System for UP' was launched on 23 April. As a result, a record supply of one thousand metric tons of oxygen per day has been possible in the state for the last 10 days, which was 250 metric tons in the past. This success has also set a new lesson for other states.
NITI Aayog has praised this model of UP. NITI Aayog has tweeted that with this real time management, Uttar Pradesh has shown 250 MT of oxygen supply to 1000 MT in a very short time. The commission has also called the model of door-to-door corona testing in rural areas of the state extremely effective. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has also given instructions to increase the oxygen supply further.
Uttar Pradesh is the first state to implement an online monitoring system for the supply of oxygen. Food safety and Drug Administration, Medical Education Department, Medical Health and Family Welfare Department, Transport and Home Department were added to the digital platform.
Additional Chief Secretary, Home Avnish Kumar Awasthi said that the location, oxygen status and demand of oxygen tanker on the Oxi Cracker Dash Board is being monitored in a special control room in the Home Department. Arrangements have been made to leave the nearest vehicle to the hospital by tracking the online presence of the vehicles engaged in oxygen supply, so that the demand for oxygen can be met in a short time.
Oxygen supply was ensured from Jharkhand, Odisha, West Bengal. As an emergency, the rail network was used to supply oxygen and with the help of the Air Force, arrangements were made to send an empty tanker to bring oxygen to other states. Blue print has also been designed to meet the challenges of the coming days.
Modinagar, Agra, Kanpur, Lucknow and Varanasi have been made primary hubs, while Bareilly and Gorakhpur have also been made hubs at number two. So that oxygen supply is possible at any place in record time.
UP at the forefront of oxygen supply:
Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Avnish Kumar Awasthi said that oxygen supply has been increased to 1000 metric tons per day in the state. No state has supplied so much oxygen. As much oxygen is needed in the state, that much oxygen is being transported to the districts.
Number of Oxygen Plant growing:
Wakag Oxygen Generation Plants have been built in 13 districts of the state. The Government of India has sanctioned such plants for 14 institutions, of which five have been installed and work is underway in nine. The state government has also shared the list of 167 additional locations for setting up more plants with the central government.
