Meanwhile, the Union Health Ministry on Sunday said India's vaccination programme against COVID-19 has been one of the most successful and largest in the world. The ministry also termed as 'misleading', some reports that claimed the country has missed its COVID-19 inoculation targets.

Since the start of the national COVID-19 vaccination drive on January 16 last year, India has administered to over 90 per cent of its eligible citizens first doses and 65 per cent second doses.

"In a recently published news article by a reputed international news agency, it has been claimed that India has missed its vaccination target. This is misleading and does not represent the complete picture," the ministry said in a statement.
