To ensure proper sanitization protocols for its employees, Municipal Commissioner, Dinesh Chandra Singh had given orders for purchase of 2,000 litres of hand sanitizer at government rates from Radico Khaitan Ltd, Rampur several days back. The same drill as repeated once again and the Ghaziabad Nagar Nigam (GNN) purchased the same quantity of hand sanitizer at the same rates to be packed in 500 ml bottles each having a composition of 80% alcohol, fit enough to disinfect several surfaces where virus settles down for larger spans.
These hand sanitizer bottles were today handed over to 550 drivers of the GNN vehicles through zonal incharges and sanitation officials. Further distribution will be done in the coming days.
According to Singh the hand sanitizer purchase was made from the same company at rates far lesser than market rates thereby saving considerable costs to the GNN.
