Jitendra Singh discusses with scientific experts on modalities of installing UV-C Disinfection Technology in Parliament House

Minister for Science and Technology Dr Jitendra Singh yesterday discussed with scientific experts on the modalities of installing the latest UV-C Disinfection Technology in the Parliament House, on the eve of the upcoming session on 19th of this month. The technology has been developed by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).

The Minister informed that, to begin with, the technology meant for mitigation of airborne transmission of SARS-COV-2 will be installed in the Central Hall, Lok Sabha Chamber and Committee Rooms 62 and 63. However, Dr Singh cautioned that even after installation of this disinfection technology, everybody is advised to strictly adhere to COVID appropriate behaviour including use of Face Mask, maintaining social distance, avoiding crowds etc.

CSIR-CSIO has developed an UV-C air duct disinfection system. The disinfection system can be used in auditoriums, large conference rooms, class-rooms, malls etc which provides a relatively safer environment for indoor activities in the current pandemic. It can also be used in buildings, transport vehicles, etc.
