Centre says it has delivered to hospitals 3,000 concentrators received as aid

The Centre on Thursday clarified there was no pendency of oxygen concentrators, received as international aid, with the Indian customs, and the entire shipment of about 3,000 of them was either delivered or dispatched to hospitals across the country.

"The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) has clarified that there is no such pendency with Indian Customs. The Indian Customs is swiftly clearing all consignments & no such figures of pendency exist across any port of import," said Union health ministry in a statement on Thursday.

"It has been reported in some sections of the media that oxygen concentrators are pending at the Customs warehouse for getting clearance from the Custom authorities. The news is totally incorrect, not based on facts and without any basis."

In all, 3,000 oxygen concentrators have been received from various countries as the second wave of Covid-19 pandemic has overwhelmed India hospitals and triggered a shortage of essential medical supplies and equipment.
