New Delhi, April 22
Invoking the Disaster Management Act, 2005, the Centre on Thursday directed all state governments and UT administrations to ensure uninterrupted supply of medical oxygen across the country.

It said: “No restriction shall be imposed on the movement of medical oxygen between the states. Transport officials shall be instructed to allow free inter-state movement of such vehicles. No authority shall attach the oxygen carrying vehicles passing through the districts or areas for making supplies specific to any particular district or area.”
The directive under the stringent Act was issued by Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla in the wake of reports that some states blocked supply of medical oxygen to other states amid a sudden spike in Covid cases. Those found violating the order will face punishment up to one year of jail or fine or both.
Bhalla said the district administrative and police heads would be “personally liable” for implementation of the directives. — TNS
