Doesn’t this just mean you don’t have to quarantine and can travel to US? You still need to obtain an F1 visa, you can’t get the NIE without it.

Yep agreed - change of status is not usually recommended. It takes far too long.

Out of sheer curiosity because I live outside of both countries - are there requirements from both India/US to enter into US? I heard from US news that India is experiencing variants that vaccines cannot 100% cover.

I believe the ban is to enter the US from India, unless you are a US Citizen or are a student or have a documented emergency. For the opposite trip, you just need a Covid-19 negative test. Not quite sure on the vaccine stuff - off hand, I think the vaccine efficacy is yet to be fully determined.
