NOIDA/GREATER NOIDA: Extending the oxygen facility for home-isolation patients further, industrial development authorities in Noida and Greater Noida said on Tuesday that people staying in urban villages as well in colonies and apartment buildings that are yet to get registered, will also be given cylinders now on.
After checking the required documents including the doctor’s prescription, oxygen saturation level report, Aadhaar card and the Covid-19 report of patients, both the Noida Authority and the Greater Noida Authority will offer oxygen cylinders to their kin. The authorities will, however, take security fees amounting to Rs 2,500 and Rs 200 towards gas charges for the use of a cylinder for a week.
To streamline the process, Noida Authority has set up 10 more collection centres besides the ones in sectors 93B and 135 which have been set up for residents welfare associations and apartment owners associations.
The Greater Noida Authority has also set up four centres to cover various residential blocks and apartment societies in both Greater Noida East and West. On May 5, the Noida Authority initiated the oxygen bank service for its residents who are getting treated at homes.
CEO of the Greater Noida Authority, Narendra Bhooshan said, “To meet the demand of residents and to ensure that no black marketing takes place, the industrial development authorities have standardised the oxygen bank programme. Initially the oxygen was being supplied only to Covid care facilities. But now the situation has improved and we are in a position to provide the gas to the residents in home isolation.”
