New Delhi, India: Food safety regulations to be enforced in city

After a year delay, the Delhi Government has decided to implement the Food Safety and Standards (Licensing and Registration of Food Businesses) Regulations 2011 from the first week of August. This means food safety licence would be mandatory for tea stalls, dhabas, fruit and vegetable sellers, grocery shops, milk vendors, canteens, caterers, restaurants, hotels, food processors in the national Capital. Even trucks and other vehicles engaged in transporting food will have to obtain licences to this effect.

On the delay in the implementation of the Regulation, Health Minister Ashok Kumar Walia told The Pioneer that the implementation had been extended six month by the Central Government. “As far as Delhi is concerned, a Hyderabad-based company will open six counters in the Capital so that hawkers and vendors could be registered,” Walia said, adding the Food Safety and Standards Act would ensure improved quality of food for the consumers and censure misleading claims and advertisement by those in food business.
