The Court ruled that forcing vaccination is unconstitutional. Bodily integrity is protected under Article 21 of the Constitution. No one can be forced to be vaccinated. However, the Government can impose some rules.
Government’s arbitrariness in restricting access to public places to the unvaccinated
The court ruled that it is the arbitrariness of some State Governments to restrict unvaccinated people from entering public places. In the present situation, these conditions should be withdrawn. The Court further ruled that there should be no restrictions on any person in public places as long as the number of Covid-19 infected patients is less. If such restrictions are still in place, they should be lifted.
