The new rules, which take effect from Monday, follow the UK decision to require Indians vaccinated with AstraZeneca's Covishield to quarantine.
AstraZeneca is one of the key providers to Britain's vaccination program, along with U.S. peers Moderna (MRNA.O) and Pfizer (PFE.N).
"India has decided to impose reciprocity on UK nationals arriving in India from the UK," the source said, declining to be identified in line with government policy.
