You are right, Cipla has secured approval from the DCGI to import Moderna COVID-19 vaccines for restricted emergency use in India. Under the extant rules, Cipla will have to submit 7 days safety assessment data of the vaccine administered to the first 100 beneficiaries before rolling it out on a mass scale.

This 7 days safety assessment was stipulated to speed up the roll out of vaccines in India when it is already approved by US-FDA for emergency use. Moderna will be the fourth COVID-19 vaccine available in India after Covishield of Astra Zeneca, Covaxin of Bharat Biotech and Sputnik of RDIF, Russia.
