DC cracks whip on illegal bottled water units

Deputy Commissioner D Randeep on Wednesday warned stern action against the illegal bottled drinking water business and also directed the officials to take measures against those who violate the norms.

Speaking at a meeting on the Food Safety Act, Randeep said that only the companies which have obtained necessary licence from Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) or ISI standards, are allowed to supply bottled drinking water. The companies should print the details of the company and the caps should be sealed. The DC suggested the people to check for the details when they buy bottled water.

The DC said, as many as 18 illegal units have been closed so far and also instructed the officials concerned to monitor the bottled water business.

If the public find anyone involved in illegal business then they can lodge complaint by dialling 0821-2438144/94498 43265/96866 78041.

Speaking about adulteration of milk, the DC said, the authorities collected samples from 25 places and got it tested at Central Food Technological Research Institute (CFTRI). One sample was adulterated with sugar and it has been sent for additional tests. Suitable action will be initiated, if it was found adulterated, the DC warned.
