In order to help the state achieve 100% Covid vaccination target, the Aurangabad district administration in Maharashtra has adopted a strict policy.
Now citizens who have not even received one dose of vaccine will not receive petrol, gas or ration.
According to the order, people above 18 years of age who have not taken the first dose of vaccine or those who have not taken the second dose despite being eligible for the same, must not be allowed to enter private establishments such as tourist spots such as Bibi Ka Maqbara, Ajanta Caves, Daulatabad Fort and Ellora Caves.
People who have not taken any dose of vaccine will not be able to travel inter-state, inter-district by public or private vehicles.
Moreover, they will also not have the access to any tourist places in the district and their travel will be restricted within the state and district.
Vaccination has been made compulsory for all workers at hotels, resorts and shops located in tourist places. The order came into effect in the district from November 9.
Aurangabad district ranks no. 26 in the state in the number of preventive Covid vaccinations.
Expressing concerns over the slow pace of vaccination in Maharashtra, chief minister Uddhav Thackeray has also directed officials to achieve the target of 100% vaccination by November 30.
