Mahindra has pressed into service 100 vehicles to overcome the transportation bottleneck with safe and quick transportation to deliver oxygen cylinders 'on demand'.

At present, oxygen cylinders are being rushed to hospitals from the Rajghat & Mayapuri oxygen depots. Moreover, the company also plans to scale up operations in Delhi as well as neighbouring centres.
It ensures swift supply of Oxygen by partnering with civic administration and hospitals to bridge the gap between supply and demand. The initiative was first launched in Mumbai, Thane, Pune, Pimpri-Chinchwad, Chakan, Nasik and Nagpur. Around 600 oxygen cylinders are being delivered every day with Bolero pickup trucks.
