Food joints to come under FSSAI scanner soon

The district-level structure of Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) will have a full swing functioning soon. Even though the Authority came into effect throughout the country in August last year, the district-level structure was not functioning due to shortage of staff.

The district-level structure consists of Food Safety Officers (FSO) in each taluk, a designated officer at district-level and an adjudicating officer. The adjudicating officer is the Additional Deputy Commissioner of the district and the District Surveillance Officer (DSO) is given the charge of the district-level designated officer of the Authority.

Currently, due to lack of manpower, FSOs from other districts are given charge of the taluks in Dakshina Kannada from January onwards. The FSO of Tarikere taluk in Chikmagalur district is looking after the matters in Mangalore and Belthangady taluks.

FSO of Kollegal taluk in Mysore is in charge of Bantwal, Sullia and Puttur taluks in the district.

  • Dhiren Gandhi:

    How does one register for this license? We are not even sure what license we have to register for. Does food / snacks beings sold through carts at various places also require a license? which license? No one is clear. In addition to BBMP license, we need this license as well?
