In order to have oxygen supply to hospitals and medical institutions at the right time, it will be mandatory to install a tracking device in the container vehicle. In this connection, the Ministry of Transport has tweeted.
This special device will be installed in the oxygen containers vehicle
Due to the second wave of corona infection, there has been a shortage of oxygen throughout the country. The government is constantly sending containers for the supply of oxygen to the hospitals as soon as possible, but sometimes due to getting stuck in the way or due to other reasons, they are not able to reach at the right time. In such a situation, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has taken an important decision. Now the ministry has made it mandatory to install vehicle location tracking (VLT) devices in vehicles with oxygen containers.
A tweet has also been made by the Ministry in this regard. It states, “MoRTH has made it mandatory to install vehicle location tracking (VLT) devices in oxygen containers / tankers / vehicles. GPS tracking will ensure the monitoring and safety of these tankers, besides taking care that there is no delay due to diversion. ”

Delhi High Court reprimanded
In the hearing on Tuesday on lack of oxygen, the Delhi High Court strongly reprimanded the Central Government. The court said, ‘Seeing the situation in the country, you can close your eyes, not us. We cannot see people dying. The High Court told the Central Government that if the consumption of oxygen is less in Maharashtra at this time, then some tankers can be sent to Delhi.
