Centre needs to revamp its O2 allocation plan: SC

The Supreme Court on Thursday said that the central government's policy on allocating medical oxygen supplies to states needed a "complete revamp", highlighting what it said were the "most obvious points" of considerations overlooked by the expert committee.

Observing that it was inclined to set up a committee to review the Centre's policy, the bench of justices Dhananjaya Y Chandrachud and MR Shah found fault with the Centre's formula to link allocation of oxygen to only the number of beds in the hospitals of a state and its active cases.

"Your formula requires a complete revamp. Now, we tell you the practical problem is that when you prepared this formula, not everyone required oxygen or bed but many patients today require oxygen even at home. Your formula takes into account number of beds in hospitals but not those who will require it at home because there are no beds available anywhere," it told solicitor general Tushar Mehta, who represented the Union government.
