A public interest litigation (PIL) petition has been filed before the Bombay High Court seeking directions to be issued to the Maharashtra government to relax all travel related restrictions for citizens who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and possess vaccination certificates. .The petition filed by Mohan Bhide, a qualified chartered accountant, sought directions to permit travel after lapse of 15 days from last day of COVID vaccine administration.Fully vaccinated persons should be permitted to lead their normal lives including but not limited to conducting regular business for regular hours in compliance with COVID protocols, the plea said. .The PIL filed through advocates Neelaja Kirpekar and Shekhar Bhagat raised grievance that since outbreak of COVID pandemic and lockdown many citizens have lost opportunity to earn their livelihood. Due to the extra ordinary situation created by the pandemic, businesses and regular affairs had been curtailed since March 2020, Bhide submitted..Bhide relied upon the order of the State government of July 15, 2021 allowing travellers from out of the State to visit Maharashtra without a negative RT PCR test report if the visitor has been fully vaccinated and travelling after 15 day span. .Bhide claimed that since about 30% of the total population of Maharashtra has been vaccinated with at least one dose, and a large number of the population was being fully vaccinated, it is safe for fully vaccinated citizens who have completed 15 days after the second dose of vaccine to begin travelling by public transport. .One of the grounds seeking relaxation was that permitting fully vaccinated persons to carry out their regular business would lead to faster recovery of the economy. He also submitted that such a relaxation might motivate more citizens to take the vaccine and reduce the risk of a third wave of COVID.
