UP Government to keep a track on availability and supply of oxygen through new technology: Read here



Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh government can now keep a track on supply and availability of oxygen in Government administered hospitals after collaborating with a private player named ‘Rodic Consultants’. The company has developed the first-of-its-kind digital portal with the help of national level shooter named Raj Kumar who voluntarily agreed and motivated his other national level shooter friends to join for the good cause.

Over 100 national shooters volunteers have come forward to augment Rodic Consultants’ efforts with an aim to combat oxygen shortage in the state of Uttar Pradesh. Among the renowned shooters who have joined the fight against COVID-19 are Asutosh Dwiwedi, Pardeep Kumar Singh, Tabish Ahmed, Rahul Soni, Monu Kumar, Harpreet Sing, Shalender .

The unique platform will regularly monitor and track the real-time location of vehicles so that oxygen reaches hospitals without any delay, especially during emergencies. The company is leveraging the ‘hub and spoke’ model to streamline the oxygen supply. The model requires intensive manpower to ensure a hassle-free supply across the state.

The shooters are conducting data gathering and entry, GPS Web application monitoring, oxygen tanker location tracking, and monitoring with Regional Transport Office and Medical Department of Uttar Pradesh. They are present at the oxygen manufacturing facilities where the tracking devices are installed and enabled. These devices ensure minimum turnaround times and facilitate end-to-end coordination between multiple departments for seamless movement of oxygen tankers.

“These are unprecedented times as we are witnessing a sharp surge in coronavirus cases across the country. Collaboration will be the key to winning the battle against COVID-19. As Rodic we are contributing by setting up a command centre for oxygen movement across the country like we did successfully along with the UP Government. I had appealed to all my fellow shooters across India to come forward and support us as volunteers. We have received a very positive response from the shooter’s community, I thank all shooters who have come forward and volunteered to augment our efforts to tackle COVID-19,” said Raj Kumar, Chairman & Managing Director, Rodic Consultants Pvt. Ltd.

Rodic Consultants is mulling to deploy this unique oxygen monitoring system to other states as well including Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, Punjab & Delhi to tackle the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic.
