Maharashtra Govt. to introduce Bill on milk adulteration


Tuesday, December 22, 2009 04:56:22 PM, UNI

Nagpur: A Bill providing strict penal action against people adulterating milk and its products, would be introduced in the budget session of the Maharashtra Legislature, Water Resources and Energy Minister Ajit Pawar told the state Legislative Council today.


Noting the concern expressed by members cutting across party lines on the serious health consequences posed to the masses by adulterated milk and the lenient punishment handed down to the guilty under the existing legal provisions, Pawar, responding on behalf of the state government following the directions of Chairman Shivajirao Deshmukh, said the government too was equally concerned about the matter.


Before the Bill is introduced in the budget session, the government might even promulgate an ordinance, he said.


The issue came up for discussion in the House after a starred question raised by Rajan Teli of Congress and others regarding milk adulteration in Nagpur district.


Replying to the question, Minister of State for Food and Drugs Administration, Ramesh Bagwe said the raids had been conducted on July 22 at a milk vendor's place in Nagpur and one sample each of cow and buffalo milk had been obtained.


Both the samples were found to be sub-standard and hence action has been initiated against the vendor, he said.


Bagwe further said his department conducted regular raids to check adulteration of milk and its products.


However, various members pointed out that despite government action, milk adulteration was going on on a rampant scale.


Government action failed to have any effect as guilty go scot-free due to lenient legal provisions, they added.
