The global health crisis of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic unfolded in public view, affecting millions of people worldwide. The virus, arising in late 2019, spread quickly, leading to enormous morbidity and mortality. Essentially, India, with its congested population and varied healthcare system, encountered an uneven road in grappling with the illness. Multiple surges occurred in the country, resulting in a multi-faceted catastrophe with lasting public health and economic repercussions (Sardar et al. 2020). Many segments of Indian society healthcare, economy, socially - are impacted by the pandemic to various degrees. Knowing the Indian leg of COVID-19, from inception to the present day, is essential to interpret the overall narrative. This backdrop further examines India’s response mechanisms, public health interventions, and socioeconomic consequences amid the calls for a global answer.
