Anil Kumar Lohati said
According to the most recent revisions, the UTS will be linked to the Cowin application to determine passenger vaccination status.

Relaxation In Travel Rules For Below 18 Years
In the first week of November, there was news that people below 18 years who are not eligible for vaccination were allowed to board local trains in Mumbai. But people must ensure that they take care of the rules such as Use of masks and Social distancing and sanitisation in the college campus to prevent -19 outbreak.
During October the state administration added a few more points that need to be followed. Firstly all the people must take both doses of a Covid vaccine (and have been 14 days since the second).
But in case someone has any medical condition that prevents them from taking a shot needs a doctor’s certificate to prove it.
