    May be ONGC should think of the possibility of modifying , cleaning, repainting and using cooking gas cylinders for oxygen. The situation is absolutely desperate. Millions are dying , and once national lockdown comes up no one will know the fate of people especially in rural areas.

    Skid mounted PSA oxygen plants are available which can be put into operation quickly within hours. Many plants have been imported for meeting the emergency oxygen demand. This plant in the report is also PSA plant. What you are talking about is cryogenic plant producing liquid oxygen products which will take at least a year to construct. This is just to clarify the issue.

    What done by Congress in last 70 years? Do you know that 10000 tons per day of medical oxygen diverted from steel and other plants to tide over the current crisis. Please note that all those plants were built prior to 2014. Imagine our plight now had those oxygen plants were not there in place.
