The bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Jasmeet Singh directed the Center to respond with certainty within a week of the action taken by the High Court on April 30, asking us to build an LMO stack, as we have been waiting a long time.

The court was told by a Delhi government adviser that it currently has 419 tons of basic LMO and will be maintained and that the facility will be built at a public hospital.

The court also directed these Delhi government to register a status report on the defence stock of oxygen also give details of the position of the different storage tanks and the amount of LMO stored there.

Attorney General Rahul Mehra, representing the Delhi government, said the LMO stock was kept with oxygen suppliers and would later be relocated here.

The court found that if the Delhi government had a warehouse, it should be used for oxygen tank storage so that it would be more readily available in the event of an increase in COVID-19 cases.

You may have storage capacity, but you will not get the amount of oxygen you need, and your storage tanks will be empty. All countries will work for oxygen during the crisis, and you will find it difficult to get it, the bench said.

He goes with our information in April and May. You have transportation problems, infrastructure, no storage. These were obstacles .., he said and asked the government if the matter had been scientifically investigated.
