FSSAI makes it convenient for food importers; payment system goes online

The long-awaited online payment gateway system for food importers introduced by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) for convenient processing of payment finally came into effect from February 15, 2012.

A copy of this information has been sent to the Central Board of Excise and Customs, department of revenue, ministry of finance, and National Institute of Smart Governance (NISG), the FSSAI has revealed on its website recently.

Speaking to FnB News, Shailesh B Nimbalkar, representative of FSSAI in Mumbai, stated, “The online payment gateway system had been operationalised on Dec 28, 2011, and the payment towards lab analysis by the food importers would be effective from this month.”

He explained the process of registration, thus; the importers should fill a form and attach all the necessary documents required for the food sample processing. Following which, a consent letter would be sent to them after review of the documents by the FSSAI through the officers’ online account. After which, the importers would be eligible for applying.

“A user name and a password would then be provided to them,” Nimbalkar informed. He added that the importers could pay through online henceforth and check their status 24/7, once they submit the details of the samples.


The Expert’s Thought: It’s nice to hear that India being an IT-Dominant county is finally using its IT capability for serving many Government offices.
