I have published a couple of layers on my Geoserver.

To be complaint with the T&C of my data provider, I need to block the access of some of those layers as Vector data. Hence I have already blocked the WFS services on these Layers.

I came to know that even on the WMS service, you can get Vector Data, if you use GeoRSS and some of the other formats.

How do I block GeoRSS, SVG & UTFGrid as formats in the WMS Service?

In the generic Web Map Service configuration (that is before you have chosen a workspace), you get options (at the bottom of the page) to configure the Allowed MIME types for a GetMap request, and also Allowed MIME types for a GetFeatureInfo request.
