Starting September 20, unvaccinated people will not be allowed to enter public transport or civic buildings in Ahmedabad.

AMC Commissioner Mukesh Kumar said that such people will be barred from entry into vehicles of the civic transport service, the Bus Rapid Transit System as well as Kankaria lakefront, Sabarmati riverfront, libraries, gymnasiums, sports complex, etc.

“Entry will be allowed ONLY for persons having ONE or BOTH doses (if eligible) of vaccine for availing various municipal services. A vaccine certificate shall be checked at the entry point of such facilities. To be effective from 20 September, Monday,” Kumar tweeted.
