Abstract

Indian Food Safety and Standards Act 2006 (Act) came into force in the year 2011 and the Act is being
amended further to bring animal feed into the ambit of Food Safety and also amending various sections
of the Act and proposed to increase the penalties for not having license or registration under the Act. The
present paper dwells only on the proposed definition of ‘manufacturer’ and also on the proposed penalties
for not obtaining or renewing the License or Registration as per the provisions of the Act. The above
amendments are examined from doctrinal research method and found that offences are not in compliances
with the legal jurisprudence.
