Fully Vaccinated Passengers Will Be Allowed In Mumbai Local? This Is What We Know So Far..
The Maharashtra government, led by Uddhav Thakeray, is preparing to enable fully vaccinated passengers to ride unrestrained in suburban rail services, in response to increased demand for local train services for the general public.
Lifting Travel Restrictions For Fully Vaccinated Passengers
The matter is serious as the local train services is necessary for the daily lives of the commoners and State ministers and officials, including Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar and State Health Minister Rajesh Tope, who have been debating the issue, according to recent reports.
Within few days the final decision on easing limitations for fully vaccinated passengers (those who have received both doses of COVID vaccines) will be made in a few days and will be reported to the media.
“The matter will be discussed with CM Uddhav Thackeray, post which people can expect an official announcement. However, the same might be approved only for those who have taken both the doses of COVID-19 vaccines”, Mumbai LIVE quoted Ajit Pawar as saying.
Maharashtra To Provide Relaxations In Coronavirus-Induced Restrictions
The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) head, Raj Thackeray, has previously demanded that the Chief Minister reinstate local train services for the general public, particularly for those who had completed their vaccinations. He further recommended that the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) administration in Maharashtra eliminate coronavirus-induced limitations.
“As in the rest of our country, the last 15 months, Maharashtra state government has imposed many curbs and restrictions. The restrictions imposed are being followed by the people of Maharashtra. However, lately, there seems to be a lack of clarity leading to questions as to who these restrictions are meant for? In the case of Mumbai, this lack of clarity is perplexing,”
