Punjab’s demand for medical oxygen has increased manifold during the Covid-19 second wave. While the average demand for medical oxygen was 15-20 metric tons before the pandemic last year, it has shot up to 105 to 110 MT currently.

Punjab gets liquid oxygen supplies from Inox at Baddi, Himachal Pradesh; Air Liquide, Panipat, & Roorkee; and Linde, Selaqui, Dehradun, as there is no Liquid Medical Oxygen (LMO) plant within the state. These units supply 90 MT to the state but with Haryana refusing any supplies, the state had to divert the supplies to hospitals by cutting down on the supplies to the industry.
