Delhi HC directs Centre, Delhi govt to file report on installation of O2 plants


New Delhi, May 20 (ILNS) The Delhi High Court today directed both the Central government and the Delhi government to file a report by May 27 on the installation of PSA Plants for oxygen generation

The Bench of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Jasmeet Singh, while hearing petitions on COVID-related matters said, “The position, as it appears today, is that most of the plants are yet to be installed and made operational. Installation of plants sourced from Indian manufacturers should be prioritised.”

“We direct both the GNCTD and the Union of India to file report in this regard by coming Thursday. We are of the view that if not already done, they should appoint a senior officer to monitor the installation of PSA Plants in Delhi.

“The beige experience in the NCT of Delhi has had has left a lesson to be learned. It is high time that at least the large hospitals should install their own oxygen plants, which should have capacity of at least two times of the requirement. The demand for oxygen has gone up by five times. It is once in a century event and we hope we’ll soon see the end of it. The Principal Secretary, Health shall made directions in this regards,” added the Court. ILNS/KR/RJ
