The Bihar Chamber of Commerce (BCC) and Bihar Industries Association (BIA) on Thursday expressed satisfaction over the decision of the Union government to extend by six months the deadline for registration and procurement of licenses by the manufacturers, suppliers and other operators in food supply chain under the provisions of Food Safety and Security Act (FSSA). Earlier, the Centre had fixed August 4, 2012, as the last date of registration and getting license.

BCC president O P Sah said the six months’ extension was imperative as the FSSA and its regulations were quite complicated.
