To fix accountability of oxygen supply in Gurugram, the district administration has roped in Vplak India, a professional company which manages supply chain of e-commerce companies like Amazon and Flipkart, to make supply of oxygen cylinder smooth In Gurugram.
Gurugram Divisional Commissioner Rajeev Ranjan recently held a meeting with Ravinder Yadav of Vplak India and Pradeep Aggarwal, an Artificial Intelligence expert.
Ranjan said that presently there is no accounting of oxygen cylinders as many people are taking cylinders, majority of which are not returned.
There are reports that some people are storing these cylinders.
He said that bar coding of oxygen cylinders may be done so that while distributing cylinders, mobile numbers and Adhaar number of the person receiving cylinder can be taken.
“If any cylinder does not come for refilling in 48 hours, then the details of receiver person would be sent to Call Centre, from where a call will be made to him or her.
If he or she still requires oxygen then it would be got filled up, otherwise he or she would be asked to return the cylinder, so that it can be given to another needy patient,” Ranjan said, adding that the company officials asked to devise a mechanism for proper utilisation of available resources”
Ranjan also said that the district administration would be requiring more number of doctors and paramedical staff for additional facilities and for replacement of doctors who have themselves become covid positive.

Besides retired paramedical staff is also required. We urged the persons having above specialities to come forward and get themselves registered with the the district administration,” Ranjan added.
