Government has stepped up the efforts to meet the oxygen supply throughout the country. The Centre has imported 20 cryogenic tankers of 10 MT and 20 MT capacity and allocated them to states to address shortage of oxygen tankers in the country.  These cryogenic ISO containers have been imported to augment the transportation of oxygen. Ministry of Road Transport and Highways in consultation with the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade  have mapped the allocation to suppliers of Madhya Pradesh,  Uttar Pradesh,  Rajasthan,  Delhi,  and Gujarat.
