If you see a fake vaccination drive being done or suspect a vaccination centre to be fake you should immediately file a complaint with the local police and provide relevant information to them. An FIR can be filed with the police for cheating (Sec. 415 Indian Penal Code, 1860), impersonation (Sec. 416 IPC), forgery (Sec. 464 IPC) and making false claims (Section 52, Disaster Management Act, 2005.)
Recently, the Bombay High Court had asked the Maharashtra government and police to take action against those involved in Covid-19 vaccine fraud, under the Disaster Management Act, 2005 and Epidemic Diseases Act, 1897. The Court also asked the government to give information on the procedure that housing societies should follow to ensure that fake vaccination drives are not undertaken.
