About Tech Mahindra
Tech Mahindra is a multinational company that provides BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) and IT (Information Technology) services. It is a subsidiary of the Mahindra Group that has its registered office in Mumbai and their headquarters in Pune.
Tracing back its history, Mahindra & Mahindra initiated a joint venture with the British Telecom in 1986 as a technology outsourcing entity. Soon later the British Telecom started to sell their part of the share which was 30%. They sold their shares in 3 parts and slowly got themselves detached from Mahindra & Mahindra.
How And Why Tech Mahindra Mission Oxygen Began?
For this reason, the organization is putting forward its support as Tech Mahindra mission oxygen and enabling it to set up 50 oxygen plants for the government hospitals and charitable purposes.
The goal of this mission is also to enable the hospitals to be self-sufficient by allowing the provision of PSA (Pressure Swing Absorption) plants.
Few among these plants are expected to produce a cylindrical capacity of 15 Nm3/hour. This will total to 55 oxygen cylinders every day. According to a statement, this support can provide uninterrupted oxygen supply to 27-30 patients.
Tech Mahindra Mission Oxygen has joined hands with the Mission Oxygen initiative with the Democracy People Foundation that has 250 entrepreneurs as the participants. Through this initiative Rs 36 crore has been raised from donations and there has been an arrangement of 1000 oxygen concentrators. Another 5000 oxygen generators are expected to be arranged by May 20.
As a part of the partnership, Tech Mahindra will also provide various technologies that will support the campaign digitally and expand their supply chain operations. Adding to that, the partnership will also be advantageous for Tech Mahindra’s universal partner ecosystem of the associates, partners, and clients for raising awareness.

As India falls prey to the Covid-19 pandemic’s second wave there are states that are facing an acute shortage of medical supplies prominently oxygen supplies. The social media is filled with SOS calls with people searching for oxygen supplies, hospital beds, plasma donors, and also ventilators. Many organizations across the globe have come together to arrange for these amenities.
“OkCredit” has recently launched a website – Co-aid.in. This website will navigate the users to get through the verified leads for critical medicines and equipment regarding the Covid-19. This Portal is said to provide real time information on the availability of the medical equipment. The user interface has been simplified so that users from all sectors can use it. To search for availability the user will have to just enter their location and pin code and the availability will be shown up.
OkCredit wishes to further expand this platform by affixing it with other critical resources of Covid-19 that require increased availability in the public domain.

To receive the oxygens the customers just have to request an oxygen generator from the Ola App by inserting a few primary details. The Ola will then pick up an oxygen generator via one of its cabs that is driven by the most efficient drivers and will be delivered to your doorstep. Once you are done with that cylinder Ola will again come to pick that up and will return that back to GiveIndia.
