India enacted a new law named Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006 to cope up with international standards. However, different sections of the society, especially the food processing industry and food vendors accuses the Act as a sword against them and the excessive powers with the inspoectors will led to license raj system of pre-liberalisation era. The rules are yet to be made under the Act. There should be a concerted effort to implement the law without diluting the provisions, at the same time without much bureaucratic hurdles and interferences.
