Govt Rule Of Mumbai Local Trains Only For Fully-Vaccinated Illegal, Says Bombay High Court

Mumbai: The Maharashtra government’s direction to allow local train travelling to only those who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 is “illegal” and has brazenly affected the citizens’ fundamental rights, the Bombay High Court said on Tuesday.

A division comprising Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice MS Karnik said the orders signed by the government’s then chief secretary Sitaram Kunte were in clear diversion from the prescribed procedure under the Disaster Management Rules, reported news agency PTI.

“The orders passed by the former chief secretary were in clear diversion of the prescribed procedure. Due to the illegal orders, the fundamental rights of citizens were brazenly affected,” the said the High Court.

The court observed this while hearing a bunch of public interest litigations challenging the prohibition on the use of local trains by unvaccinated people in the city.

The number of people who tested positive for Covid-19 in Mumbai was at the lowest in 20 months on Monday, the bench pointed out.

“We hope and trust that the state executive committee takes an appropriate decision on February 25, keeping in mind the declining trend of Covid-19 cases,” the High Court said while posting the matter for further hearing on February 28.
