Bengaluru: The State Government has issued a notice to JSW Steel in Ballari for not supplying enough liquid medical oxygen to the government.
Principal Secretary (Revenue) N Manjunath Prasad in the notice has stated that prolonged short supply by the JSW Steel Ltd, Ballari Complex, has limited the State’s capacity to provide timely and effective treatment to the Covid-affected, putting their lives in danger. Further, he has warned of an action against the company if it failed to fulfil its obligation to supply oxygen to the government.
The notice has been issued following the issue of inconsistency reported by the officials in the supply of oxygen that JSW Steel is required to supply to the government. “At times, the supplies have been less than 50% of the mandated allocation,” the notice stated.
