With the government’s decision to deregulate vaccine procurement and deliveries, just as the vaccine rollouts run into supply constraints, the threat of millions of people is uncovered. The new government policy stipulated that the manufacturers can set the prices of vaccines by themselves, for the fee quota. 

Indian effort to gain control on the pandemic through a full-blown vaccine rollout with state-sponsored support makes the vaccine, not just a commodity. With a completely private sector-based production and supply facing the supply constraint compounded with huge demand has opened a gateway to scrupulous intruders, waylaying to provide quick & pocket-friendly vaccinations. Methods do vary in gamut the criminal syndicate's activities by corroborating with unscrupulous hospitals, resident societies and many charitable organizations functioning under the umbrella of healing the society – on whose pretext the citizens – put their faith.

By April end, the Cowin portal had already 12 million + people awaiting or registered in this age group. It didn’t however say that mere registration will not enable them to schedule appointments. Meanwhile, those who had been administered one dose will require allocation on a priority basis. 

Let’s have an estimate of the grim situation that on the basis of Tejal Kantikar, a research analyst on vaccination data ( National Institute of Advanced Studies), has considered that inclusive of 18+ population, the states of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh will take 70 months to cover the complete vaccination of all its population at the current rate.  Similarly, Tamil Nadu is expected to take 33 months at this current rate to cover the targeted population. 


Bad actors have already tried to take advantage of the worldwide public health crisis to peddle fake vaccines. From India to many notable countries worldwide, public health had been in a state of neglect or monetized off down to the individual relationships, between the doctors and affluent people. There are millions down there who can't afford highly paid visits, is the populace that is more targets to scamsters thriving on their nefarious designs with fake vaccines at rock bottom prices.

In a suit, if the plaintiff alleges fraud, undue influence or misrepresentation, he is required to give particulars. 

The intention underlying Order 6 Rule CPS is that the opposite party is put .to sufficient notice as to the case he is called upon to meet. 

The concept of fraud as defined in Section  17 of the Contract Act is very wide – it includes any person who does or does not believe it to be true. Section 18 provides that it is a misrepresentation if a positive assertion is made by a person that it is not true in a manner that is not warranted by the information that he has. 

In Fraud, the person who makes an untruthful suggestion, does not himself believe it to be true. Vaccination drives with spurious vaccines, malicious and fake vaccines organizers are duly in an act of Fraud, as they themselves know the truth of the syndicate crime of befooling the people in pursuit of making quick money

In the constitutional definition of law related to fraud, this is an act that is committed when a person actively conceals a fact. 

Are the people involved as part of the job in Fake Vaccination Drive, are punishable under the ambit of the law?  Or this question can be rephrased as “Doing their job as medics or facilitators, can their mere silence on the Fake Vaccination Drive” may give an exception from being reprimanded by law. 

Under Supreme Court’s Of India’s digest publications, that mere silence has been explained in Exception, that would affect the decision of a person who enters a contract to be non-fraud unless it becomes his duty to speak ( Note: Here ‘duty’ refers to the person’s or any citizen’s duty to the constitution).

In various limbs of Section 17, a person who stands accused of fraud be it in a civil or criminal action may be judged for deception in the specific case. It is apparently on the account of serious circumstances, the seriousness of the crime is to be pleaded in court. 



Motive plays a significant role in a case based on circumstantial evidence, where the purpose would be to establish the important link in the chain of circumstances, in order to connect the accused with the crime. In cases of vaccination scam or scandalous person being put on trial, will be an easy job, as proving motive will not be an important factor when abundant direct evidence gets available on records.  

  • So the criminal trial on the accused perpetuating the fake medicinal, supported with an FIR and documentary or substantial evidence shall be enough to punish the offender.
