The Bombay High Court on Tuesday dismissed a PIL seeking directions to Government to conduct door-to-door COVID-19 tests in the city of Mumbai amid Lockdown.

The Chief Justice of Bombay High Court, Dipankar Datta, and Justice A.A. Sayed said that no guidelines and/or advisory of the World Health Organization or the Indian Council of Medical Research have been brought to the notice of court, which requires the official respondent state to carry out door to door testing of the residents, while dismissing the PIL.

Public Interest Litigation was filed before the Bombay High Court seeking a direction to the State Government to carry out door-to-door testing of residents of the city of Mumbai following the model that was adopted in testing the residents in Bhilwada District in Rajasthan.

 “The PIL lacks particulars of the population in Bhilwada. It does not even refer to any feature in Bhilwada that is identical or has close resemblance with Mumbai. Having regard to the testing times arising out of the pandemic, resources may be scarce for such door to door testing. Even otherwise, no guidelines and/or advisory of the World Health Organization or the Indian Council of Medical Research have been brought to our notice, which requires the official respondents to carry out door to door testing of the residents”, held by the High Court.

Therefore, the Bombay High Court found the petition as misconceived and was liable to be dismissed.
