Food adulteration menace: FSSAI drafts policy to reward whistleblowers

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) is giving final touches to a draft reward scheme for whistleblowers providing information on cases of food adulteration. This was informed to FnB News in a chat over telephone by an official from FDA Maharashtra.

The notification has been proposed to cover areas such as information that would qualify for rewards under the scheme, persons who would be able to furnish information under the scheme, mechanism for receiving the information under the scheme and further processing of information, and disbursement of the reward and fund allotment.

As per Section 95 of the FSS Act – “The state government may empower the commissioner of food safety to order payment reward to be paid to a person who renders assistance in the detection of the offence or the apprehension of the offender from such fund and in such manner to be prescribed by the state government.”
