Dozens of hospitals in cities such as New Delhi and Mumbai have run short of gas this month, sending relatives of patients scrambling for oxygen cylinders, sometimes in vain.
Medical oxygen consumption in India has shot up more than eight-fold from usual levels to about 7,200 tonnes per day this month, said Moloy Banerjee of Linde Plc, the country's biggest producer.
Cost Break Down:-
Oxygen Cylinders (10 lit): 18,000*25=4,50,000/-
