NOIDA: The Confederation of Real Estate Developers Association of India (Credai), western UP, will airlift 250 empty cylinders from Chennai and hand over them to Gautam Budh Nagar administration to get them filled with oxygen from this week.
The builders’ body said it will play an active role in Covid care support in the city. It set up an oxygen concentrator bank on Sunday and distributed 25 concentrators. It also said more oxygen concentrators will be distributed in the coming week.
“We will airlift 250 cylinders from Chennai and hand them over to the district administration of Gautam Budh Nagar so that it can get them filled from authorised sources. We will distribute the cylinders and also refill them for patients,” Bajaj added.
According to Credai officials, talks on creation of an oxygen plant are also in progress. “Talks are on for setting up an oxygen plant, but it will take some time. For immediate intervention, we have started an oxygen bank by procuring cylinders,” Amit Modi, vice president, Credai Western UP said.
At construction sites of Noida and Greater Noida, Credai said, there has not been any breakout of the disease so far, though cases have been reported among employees.
“The workforce has reduced at least by 30% at construction sites as many have left. Some cases of infection have been reported, but there has been no outbreak at any project here so far,” Bajaj added.
