Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra, who is known for his witty and often inspirational social media posts, focused on the vaccine production part of the Centre's new guidelines which allows drug makers to sell vaccines in the open market at a pre-declared price.

Hailing this decision, Mahindra tweeted, "The vital part of the new policy is that it allows the vaccine producers to sell a good percentage of their output in the open market at a pre-declared price. Profit is not a bad word; it is an incentive for higher production. The producers will rise to the occasion."

Among Bollywood stars, the first ones to react to the news were Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif. Both of them tested COVID-19 positive earlier this month, and fortunately enough, tested negative later.
