India ramps up Oxygen supply: 

At a time when the country is facing a humongous shortage of oxygen, it has also taken steps to increase the production on a massive scale. 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself held a meeting in this regard and ordered the officials to take necessary steps.

Railways has created a green corridor to help the movement of trains. It has created a special train called Oxygen Express to ferry oxygen. 

Ramps have been created to ensure its free passage.

Two C-17 aircraft ferried two empty Linde cryogenic oxygen containers while the IL 76 airlifted one empty Inox container to Panagarh.

Besides, media reports said that 23 mobile oxygen generation plants are being airlifted from Germany, which will be deployed in static hospitals.
