Maharashtra’s Mission Oxygen Self-Reliance scheme
The Mission Oxygen Self-Reliance scheme was launched recently by the Maharashtra Government to address the state’s oxygen shortage. Under this scheme, special incentives will be provided by the state government for the oxygen producing industries. It seeks to increase the state’s current oxygen generation capacity of 1,300 MT per day to 3,000 MT oxygen per day. Under this scheme, the government will provide incentives like minimising power costs and interest subsidy for MSMEs with fixed capital investment of up to Rs.50 crore.
