A bench of Chief Justice D N Patel and Justice Jasmeet Singh asked the authorities concerned to treat the plea as a representation and take a decision in accordance with the law, rules, regulations and government policy applicable to the case.

The court said the authorities will also keep in mind the availability of funds, infrastructure and human resources while arriving at a decision and with the direction, disposed of the petition by one Ashish Kumar.

Kumar, in his plea, had said that allowing vaccination centres in RWAs, NGOs and societies would help maintain social distancing norms and avoid long queues outside other centres, which in turn will reduce citizens’ exposure to COVID-19 infection.
