Due to COVID-19 pandemic, more than 112 million people infected globally and 2.47 million deaths reported worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO) officially declared the COVID-19 outbreak is a Public Health Emergency of International Concern on January 30, 2020 and rapidly spread globally it also declared the global pandemic on March 11, 2020.

Now the government of India slowly opens all the public places with some guidelines and precautions like hand washing, wearing masks in public places, maintaining 2 to 3 fit distance between two people, good personal hygiene, and avoiding people gatherings. But still we are scared about the germs, bacteria or virus present on the material/object which we use daily. Therefore considering all this problem the efficient solution is, a multi purpose sanitizing machine is designed. The specialty of this machine is new innovative design consisting of a roller conveyor mechanism with cabinet like structure, in this machine UV-C light used for sanitization.
