India: VTA sends letter to FSSAI seeking extension to licensing deadline

With August 5, 2012, the last date for compliance with Licensing and Registration under the Food Safety and Standards Regulations (FSSR), 2011, just around the corner, industry groups are urging the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), the country’s apex food regulator, to extend the deadline. In fact, one of them, the Nagpur-based Vidarbha Taxpayers’ Association (VTA), has called them pro-FDI regulations, which could bring the Inspector Raj back, and expressed hope that the deadline is extended by at least a year.

Tejinder Singh Renu, honorary secretary, VTA, and Nagpur Residential Hotels Association (NRHA), has sent FnB News a copy of a letter titled, “Appeal for extension to one year deadline expiring on August 4, 2012, as stipulated under Regulation 2.1.2 of Food Safety and Standards (Licensing and Registration of Food Businesses) Regulations, 2011.”
