Govt allows import of medical devices like oxygen canister for 3 months with riders

The government on Thursday allowed import of 17 medical devices for three months with mandatory declarations immediately after custom clearance and before sale of such products in the domestic market. To meet rising demand in the ongoing pandemic, the government has allowed import of medical devices like nebulizer, oxygen concentrators, oxygen cannister, oxygen cylinders, oxygen generators and ventilators.

An order in this regard has been issued by the Food and Consumer Affairs Ministry. “Government under the leadership of PM@ Narendra Modiji permits importers of medical devices for making mandatory declarations required under Legal Metrology Rules, 2011 after custom clearance and before sale,” Food and Consumer Affairs Minister Piyush Goyal tweeted. This will help fulfil the country’s demand of medical devices required for COVID-19, he added.
