    Food vendors must don gloves, maintain hygiene or pay 1L fine



    The next time you visit your favourite chai, pani puri or bhel puri stall, or any other small-time food seller, don't be surprised to see the vendors sport aprons and hand gloves. For, according to the new Food Safety Act, hawkers, food vendors and temporary stall owners must follow minimum standards of food safety or pay a maximum fine of Rs 1 lakh.

    The new Central Food Safety and Standard Act, 2006, replaces the existing Prevention of Food Adulteration Act; the State Food Safety Act came into effect in Maharashtra from August 5, 2011. With the implementation of the new rules, even vegetable or fruit sellers who use chemicals to ripen their products will be liable for punishment.

    "Small-time food stalls, vegetable and fruit vendors and even big-time restaurants - all will have to mandatorily follow basic hygiene rules such as wearing an apron, gloves, using clean utensils and potable water," said Satej Patil, minister of state for Food and Drugs Administration (FDA), in Mantralaya on Monday.

    "In this connection, a two-month-long awareness drive will start after the Ganpati festival. Thereafter, those who fail to comply with the norms will be fined for not maintaining the minimum standards of food safety," Patil said.

    Besides, to enforce quality control of eatables sold in the state, the government is in the process of setting up a dedicated helpline. "The helpline is aimed at ensuring public participation in the drive," said Patil. "Citizens can call on the number and get their problems heeded to by the FDA officials."

    According to the new rule, a suspect food sample seized by officials will be forwarded to the food testing laboratories and reports will have to be delivered within 14 days. "If the sample is not according to the standards, penalty will be imposed on the offender," the minister said.

    According to the Act, a maximum fine for selling unhygienic food will be Rs 1 lakh. In case of false advertisements about food products, the maximum fine is Rs 10 lakh. The minimum fine is not mentioned in the Act as it has been left to the officer on duty to decide it.

    On the new Act, Sharad Rao, leader of the Mumbai Hawkers' Union, said, "The new rule is nothing but one more method of extorting money from the poor."

    Currently, there are 265 food inspector posts sanctioned in the state, of which, more than 40 posts are lying vacant. After inclusion of food inspectors from the BMC, a densely populated city such as Mumbai and Thane will have just 19 and 18 food inspectors, respectively.

    In his reply to a query on how will the short-staffed FDA manage the uphill task of monitoring food and other eatables sold by the large network of the street vendors and restaurants, Patil said, "The strength of food inspectors has been increased. Also, food inspectors from the civic bodies will be diverted to the FDA so that it can better implement the rule."

    Other than this, the FDA department has initiated a proposal to further increase its manpower, food testing laboratories and infrastructure.

    "A Rs 35-crore proposal for the department's makeover has been forwarded to the Union government. It is likely to be approved soon," Patil said. According to the plan, the department is keen on setting up one laboratory in each revenue division.

    There are six revenue divisions in Maharashtra. Currently, a food testing laboratory is located in Mumbai and Aurangabad.

    With vendor eating experiance which includes about 20 states (only Raj, Hary HP and Kerala missing out of the bigger ones) all I can say... if you want to eat out in the tropics and cant afford 5 star all the way... or dont want to like me... then I would like to paraphrase amitsush as
    "kudhi ko bana majboot itna ki har bimari se pahle
    microbe tujhse kud pooche, oye sach mein karna hai kya"
    This is because most of the the food itself is made in the early mornings and served till late night and refrigerators are rare at the chaatwalas thela.... gloves insme kya kar lenge... as long as it is hot enough I dont mind.... and anyway it is good for you have the stomach loose one in a while....

    So naya haphta..... definitely....

    Very correctly said. Also, just making them wear gloves won't turn all the junk they serve into organic food quality. The quality of goods would be same-far from clean.
