O2W will use over 100 Mahindra vehicles to ferry oxygen cylinders.
India is currently dealing with an acute shortage of oxygen as the country grapples with the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic. Now, Mahindra has stepped in to assist hospitals and medical centres in the state of Maharashtra.
Mahindra has rolled out a free service called ‘Oxygen on Wheels’ (O2W) in Mumbai, Thane, Pune, Pimpri-Chinchwad, Chakan, Nashik and Nagpur. O2W will use over 100 Mahindra vehicles to ferry oxygen cylinders.
Mahindra is in talks with other civic administrations and government departments to roll out this service in other cities including Delhi. The company is also looking at extending this initiative to deliver oxygen cylinders directly to patients’ homes.
The company is closely working with the government to set up oxygen plants and building isolation centres. M&M’s plants as well as its suppliers are not using oxygen for any industrial activity. Tech Mahindra supported Nursing Academy’s staff and students have been helping in various hospitals.
