PIL Seeks Removal of Restrictions for Full Vaccinated Individuals

Public interest litigation (PIL) filed with the Bombay High Court is seeking the removal of COVID-19 movement restrictions for fully inoculated individuals. The PIL states that this could bring a much-needed boost to the economy. 

The plea was filed via advocates Neelaja Kirpekar and Shekhar Bhagat on behalf of Mohan Bhide, a chartered accountant teacher. The PIL sought “complete relaxation, including relaxation from all travelling restrictions” for people that have waited 15 days after receiving the second jab and have a final COWIN certificate for proof.

“This will enable them to lead a normal life and conduct business for regular hours by observing Covid-appropriate behaviour (wearing masks, sanitizing hands, social distancing) at all times,” the PIL goes on to say.

The PIL goes on to mention that this move should be considered as 30 per cent of Maharashtra’s eligible population has been vaccinated with at least one dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine.

Citing these reasons, the plea adds that it is safe to permit activities “including travel by public transport such as local trains and conducting normal business by keeping shops and offices open for the full duration.”
