Last Updated: Apr 23, 2020, 07.09 AM ISTGetty ImagesNew Delhi: The ministry of environment, forest and climate change has withdrawn its April 1 order that allowed imports of second-hand ventilators while fast-tracking import permissions required from it, through the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT), for any other equipment related to Covid-19 testing or treatment. The development comes days after concerns were raised over the ministry’s order allowing import of second-hand ventilators citing the urgent need for ventilators to treat Covid-19 patients.

Already, the ministry has started approving urgent requests for equipment within three days, said people aware of the matter. “We have told DGFT that whenever Covid-19 related imports are required and impacted by the HSMD (Hazardous Substances Management Division), please communicate it to us and we will give relaxations immediately where necessary. Some requests have already been referred to us and duly approved,” a senior official in the know told ET on condition of anonymity.
