CONCLUSION






INTRODUCTION:

Since India being a nation with largest youth population,  working age group, and it is fact that for ensuring Development and growth, Healthy Manpower is necessary, and it is fact that without quality food perfect Health cannot be attained by any individual, no matter how much exercises, medicine, they use; Also since Government of India promoting Swatch Bharat for hygienic surroundings and YOGA for personal Health, but these two are just positive catalysts for Enhancement of Health of the Individuals, but the Basic Substance is Quality Nutritious Food in appropriate Quantities, can only make Individuals Healthy, then there is no need for any Exercises/Yoga as daily work itself is a exercise that care of Health.

        Also it is fact that due to rapid urbanisation and industrialisation, and most of them feeling so called busy/ lazy in their life and most of the people in the country are attracted to processed food, and the food processing sector is growing rapidly in India, in addition large chunks of imports of processed food is available in INDIA due to low cost, Strangely even the traditional foods made in a traditional way are now available in ready packs like raw material for like IDLIES, DOSAS, ROTIES etc even in the so called MASALAS used in Cooking like Ginger Garlic paste people in villages are using the packaged one,  people are patronizing them without knowing how much quality raw material they use, hygienic standards followed by the manufacturers;, its really a boon for the section of perverted people who try to make money out of adulterated processed food/ sub standard products literally at the cost of health of  millions of people, putting the life’s of millions of people at risk, for their self centred selfish acts; also it is a fact whether the manufacturers are MNC or Indian local companies they apply double standards in preparing food, using top quality raw material for export oriented packs, and less standard raw material for the  products sold in India, it’s a fact that established in recent food quality standards ; also it is fact even in transport vehicles Indian manufacturers who sold vehicles in India do not adhere to safety standards, do not qualify the basic crash safety tests at 55 -60 km speed, whereas the same type of  vehicles exported by them to abroad adhere to high crash test standards, then one can imagine how much concerned for the government regarding the quality tests in INDIA; also it is fact that prevention is better than cure, also it is fact that Health care  facilities in India are far reach for millions of people, especially in rural areas and to the downtrodden sections in India, so keeping in view of all that India should aim at ensuring quality food without any scope for adulteration/ sub standard contra brand foods sold in India, in all packaged products from so called Mineral water to oil to spices to small eats, to ready to cook foods, for ensuring good health of all people in India; through containing happing of adulteration, sale of contra band products in a cost effective manner to a large extent. This measure saves billions of rupees expenditure on Health care, in addition it contributes billions of rupees to GDP due prevention of loss of millions of man hours on account of illness of the work force, enhanced millions of man hours due to good health thus over all development and growth of the nation occurs, and INDIA will become self sufficient & super power nation.

PART -1

1)         MEASURES TO CONTAIN FOOD ADULTERATION & TO CONTAIN SALE OF CONTRA BRAND OF VARIOUS PRODUCTS.

·        FOOD ADULTERATION

        Also it is a fact that food adulteration causes serious long term health problems for majority of people, and also it is a fact till date no stricter implementation of food safety laws, and lack of systems in place to containing food adulteration and sale of contra brand products by default settings in systems to identify such malpractices. As such it should be the duty of the Government to control the adulteration of the food items both raw and cooked food through brining in default settings in systems of governance and also through public awareness and public scrutiny of the food processing, after all the end consumers of all processed food is the public. Some of the common adulterated foods are milk and milk products, atta, edible oils, cereals, condiments (whole and ground), pulses, coffee, tea, confectionary, baking powder, non-alcoholic beverages, vinegar, basin and curry powder which needed to be controlled. Also need to prevent the adulteration in fruits. Also in most of the restaurants and food courts, canteens in the colleges, hostels, offices, factories in many cities and towns do not follow ethical norms and most of the foods are adulterated to earn more profits, loot the money provided by the government for the welfare of children & downtrodden, it is fact that most of the food raw material used by the commercial, government sponsored, subsidised food courts are sub standard/ adulterated, for that matter even the Multi National Companies are treating INDIA as third rated country and use sub standard quality raw material, (one can test from biscuits, to chocolates to any other products where the same brand same product if one tastes the Indian Manufactured product, and the one Manufactured in other countries like USA, UK, AUS, EU, UAE etc, the quality of the same product is hell to haven difference, also recent controversy of MNC noodles, the sub standard, not adhere to food safety standards, due to poor quality control mechanisms in India, in addition due to acute corruption in India, that they can manage anything and everything, and also majority of the people in India do not use their rights for quality food and do not bother about food safety measures), also it is fact that even in some cases are stored for more than its shelf life most of them are preparing from the rotten raw materials, especially the non vegetarian, most cases the oils are of fully adulterated, sub stand oils, even more heinously oils extracted from dead animal are being used (which can cause serious log tem health risks for the consumers) etc  al leading  to illness in the urban and semi urban people, especially the youth, working class who are consumers of food prepared under these conditions, all this adulteration just to earn small profit for few section of people, causing serious health risks for millions of people and loss of billions of rupees of GDP. The condition can be improved if there are stringent laws, with stringent punishments, default settings in systems making all stake holders behave ethically, as per law, coupled with periodic inspections by the government for quality control of manufactured products, especially the packaged food products, in the larger interest of people of the country.

        It’s ideal that government must put immediate attention on Adulteration of Packaged Drinking water, Milk, Edible oil, Powdered attas, Spices, Packaged Fruit Juices, etc

A)        PACKAGED DRINKING WATER

·        MEASURES FOR CONTAINING ADULTERATION OF PACKAGED WATER

It’s a fact that majority of the diseases are water born, and also it is a fact that majority of India do not have perfect potable water; also it is fact that there is exponential are of rise in use of packaged drinking water, even in rural areas, but is is fact majority of the packed drinking water is sub standard or just ordinary water filled in pack’s and sold in market, strangely most of them have so called ISI mark on the pack. The per capta consumption of packaged / bottled water increases every year,  expected to touch 30 litres by 2020 from the present per capta consumption of 20 litres with a market value of over 36000 crore by 2020. Even though ISI mask is mandatory, but its only on paper in majority of the cases (which was fully exposed during the recent controversy of MNC noodles which has  ISI certification, all food certifications, but strangely even if MNC companies do not follow quality standards then one can imagine the local small time manufactures), and most of the so called mineral water sold in bottles / packages (less than 2 litres occupies 85% of market share of total packaged water market), with more than 3400 bottling plants in India at present may get increased in future to meet the demand, and most of the small players (top 5 brands occupy over 65% market) do not adhere to standards, they do not get quality water, they just drill bore wells according to their will and wish completely depleting the entire ground water tables in that territory, in addition some of them indulge in water theft by managing the municipal water to divert the water meant for common public for their factories, in addition most of them just for the sake of processing may do or some even just do some chlorination and pack the water (just to ensure that water gets long life without developing micro bacteria in the packets, but excess bleaching agents are more dangerous than bacteria for health), with no manufacturing and expiry date, sold largely in the semi urban areas, slums, and in rural areas in sachets, bottles, most of the low income group and middle income group people are the vulnerable for health risks by consuming c semi / un treated water with long stored water with many bacteria’s grown in the water some cases most harmful bacteria like E collie completely putting the health of the consumers at maximum risk.

        Also it is very sad on the part of the government to allow the so called LIQUOR / ALCOHOL BEVERAGES advertisements in the form of bottled water in the brand name of the alcohol companies which otherwise do not manufacture bottled water, but in order to promote their brand of alcohol in indirect way they just provide the local mineral water manufacturers/ with just packaging industry for job works, to manufacture mineral water in their brand name and provide the same with highest margin to all wine shops, local shops in that vicinity/ distinct/ territory, so that  their brand gets popular; in this process in order to provide maximum margin to the retailer, they do not bother about any quality of the water in the braded water bottles in their name.  So government must make it mandatory that no alcohol brand can promote mineral water hence forth in the brand name of that Liquor company, if they own the mineral water plant they can promote that in some other name, not the liquor name.

        Also in order to ensure that bottled water is quality standards that it should be made mandatory that all the 3400 odd bottled water plants in India should provide details of source of water, the type of plants, treatment process, the raw materials source, inventory, the processing of the plant, with bar coding on each bottled/ packaged water, with details of the quality, what their internal factory quality control revealed for that batch of products in that bar coded bottles,  the details of distributors, retailers, from which barcode to which bar code each retailer has, the date of manufacture, the date of expiry, total sale on line real time, with mandatory on the part of the distributors, in each district to test the quality of the water  in camera if the consumers demand, in addition it should be mandatory that there should be water quality testing laboratories in every District in the first phase , later on in every mandal / block  by the bottled water manufactures association with international standard quality testing laboratories, government may provide free land, water, power for such laboratories; also there should be toll free quality control testing number, soon the consumer finds that there is difference in quality of water, then they may just lodge online complaint, in the toll free number, it is for the  manufacturers association to immediately collect the samples from the same batch from the retailer and test for its quality.  Also all the manufacturing should be under High resolution multiple CC cameras surveillance and web casting, and the manufacturers association should have control room to monitor the processing of the water online real-time, in all the 3400 odd water processing plants, and alert the manufactures in case found any discrepancy, or on the complainant of the consumers.      
        Also in order to prevent the circulation of duplicate brands/ contra brand products of popular brands, the government must make a mobile app that can read the bar-coding on the labels, packs of the water, or the consumer can just type the bar code number in the app or SMS the bar code to a designated number, then the details should reveal whether the product is manufactured by the original manufacturer or not, who is the retailer that the product selling, also in case already the bar code was sold the details of sold area/retailer; for this government must make it mandatory that all manufactures should maintain a website, in addition make it public online, real time, the product bar coding, the product distribution to the retailers and the products sold, also list of area wise availability of the packaged drinking water brands should be made; the same should be available in the government website, anyone can find any time details of packaged water; this measure has numerous benefits, it contains to a large extent circulation of duplicate of original brands. Also there should be stringent punishments for adulterated, contra brand, sub standard packaged water manufacturers, distributors and retailers Also if any of the retailer sells the product without having permission to sell such products, or after the date of expiry, then he/she should get stringent punishments; this measure eliminate to a great extent the circulation of adulterated/ substandard products to the consumers.

·        MEASURES FOR ENSURING ALL SECTIONS OF PEOPLE OF INDIA CONSUME SAFE DRINKING WATER; R O WATER PLANTS IN ALL OVER INDIA AT ALL MAJOR PUBLIC UTILITY PLACES TO PREVENT PEOPLE FROM DRINKING CONTAMINATED WATER

        Also government must ensure long drawn plan for installation of RO Water purifiers in all villages/ slums in the country, with nominal charges for providing the clean potable drinking water to entire people of INDIA; this should start with all Schools, collages, work places or hospitals, should mandatorily use only RO water, whether they are government or private; this will improve the health of millions of people as most of the people are drinking contaminated water/impure water which is coming from government water supply or from the bore wells or from the nearby water bodies. Government must provide tax concessions, subsidies for installation of water purifiers, RO sets, whether they are institutional or individual purchase.  (like solar lamps etc). Also the data of date of installation, use of such RO water purifies should be with government for all government and private schools, work places, in addition all individuals who purchased and installed by the RO companies should be with the government, which will send the general reminders for the recharge, maintenance. Also the charts of date of installation, due date of maintenance, indentifying the time to change the refills, etc should be installed near the water RO water dispenser, so that the users also can alert for maintenance.   The RO water Plants should not be adjacent to Toilets, always RO water purifiers/ dispense should be near to the entrance of the institution or should be available in the canteens/ food eating place of that building.

        Also Government should ensure RO water is available in all public junctions in length and breadth of India, for the use by the common public. Also RO water facility near all Major toll booths, all Border Crossings, all major junctions in Highways adjacent to Dhabas where most of the travellers stop for food, rest, most of the truck, bus, cabs stop for servicing, all the petrol pumps should mandatorily install RO water  with multiple dispensers based on the density of vehicle population visiting that petrol pump (this will enable most of the drivers and passengers fill the safe drinking water in bottles free of cost, the cost of installation and maintenance should be borne by the oil companies in CSR, the water dispensers should be at the exit point preferably so that before leaving they just fill a bottle of water and leave; similarly all police stations, courts, all post offices, all banks should have RO water facilities; and even public can carry the RO water from these places if they wish.

        If government of India could not spend that much, immediately, it should make it mandatory that all CSR funds should be diverted to make RO water facilities available in all India, also government may levy 2% special cess on petrol, power bills to accumulate funds for creation RO water facilities in India, and there should be special department only for RO water installation and Maintenance in every district and also in every MANDAL/ BLOCK with trained staff, machinery, spares and quick response technical teams, with appropriate necessary inventory of spares, also some stand by RO plants for immediate replacement in case of major repair, all this to ensure no RO is left non working for more than 12 hours Also government must provide tax concessions for RO water installations by  private business establishments in their commercial complexes, large apartments, also by the NGO’s in slums and in rural areas. As it is fact that most of the diseases are water borne, and if the water intake is perfect, then natural immunity, stamina will occur to the people of the country, with a country with more than 70% youth population this is very necessary.

·        MANDATORY ALL ICE MANUFACTURED SHOULD BE FROM RO WATER

        Also government make it mandatory that all ICE manufacturing units must use only RO water for any application of use of ice, whether it is for human consumption used to mix with water or juices or used in storing the sea foods like fish etc or storing of dead corpus; it should be a serious crime and rigorous punishable offence for using ICE obtained from mortuaries’ to used by fruit juice makers, Road side Ice cream vendors etc.




B)        MILK ADULTERATION

        Even though India is the largest producer of milk in the world, still the per capta consumption of Milk is just around 300 mg per day with over 130 million metric tonnes of production, with the milking animals population of over 121 million, but there is lack of systems in place lading to milk adulteration as the demand for milk is growing and the production do not meet the demands, also it is fact that all milking cows & buffalos do not milk 365 days a year, the average milking (lactation) days are 290-300 days in India, with demand for over 160 million metric tones by in next 4-5 years, there is acute milk adulteration in India, Since milk is the primary requirement in the food that will provide the vitamin A‟ useful in the better eye care, calcium deposit in the bones and the cured provides the pro biotic bacteria useful in the digestive system in the body and many more uses of milk, it is necessary that people of India consume milk daily. So government must ensure milk productions at all the places are improved substantially to contain milk adulteration.

        In order to ensure the milk supplied is genuine and original and pure, government must make it mandatory that all the milking supplying units to get the registered with the government Milking Cattle Information Centre (MCIC), through the help of the animal husbandry department at each and every village and the dairy farms. Government must maintain mandatorily the cow census to arrive the population of the milking cows and the total natural milk production in the country based on the average milk production of each cow, in order to achieve this cattle should be given a specific number tagged with Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID) tag which cannot be duplicated locally as each tag has unique number which can be read only by the electronic reader (this will help the cattle owners to identify their cattle when it is missed), All the cattle owners (more than 12 million) shall be given a electronic card to be swiped at the village dairy cooperative societies (over 1,10,000) while delivering the milk to record the milk provided by the individual owner of the cattle. All the data of the milking cows should be separated and the average milk production can be arrived.

        Also there should be instant quality testing of the milk at the base collection centres with simple tests for ensuring no adulterated milk is gathered at the base collection centres; also there should be complete ban on sale of milk on commercial bases by the individual who own milking animals, all individuals  should register with the government for raising milking animals, and in case they wish to supply on commercial bases they should supply by becoming a member of cooperative milk units and supply to the base collection centre;  otherwise they can  use the milk produced without being a member in the cooperative for personal consumption.  Also all commercial outlets using the milk as raw material should be barred from purchasing milk from non registered members. Also government must make it mandatory that all milk purchasers should get register with the government with their voter ID card and mobile phone number for all packaged milk. This measure will provide accurate data of consumption of milk, availability, demand and supply gap each territory wise and scope for adulteration get reduced to a great extent.

        All the dairy milk suppliers should mandatorily supply the milk in the packs only with bar coding on the consumers can verify the same in the government website for the authenticity of the pack; also it should be mandatory that all milk distributors, vendors should get register with government. All the milk supply should be registered in the MCIC about the collection details from the individual cattle owners and the dairy from. This will ensure that all production, supply of milk is natural, safe pure milk is supplied to the consumers. Also this will ensure fair price for the milk is paid to the owner of the cattle. Also this will reduce the milk production enhancement artificially by banned oxytocin injections, to the milking Cowes will be drastically reduced as the original data of the cow is known to the MCIC and will asses that which breed of cow will give what quantity in normal circumstances on an average. Also this measure contains to a large extent duplication of the milk packs, lose sale by vendors etc

        Also it should be mandatory that for all medical retailers sell the ocytocin only on the prescription of the doctor will ensure reduction of irrational use of oxytocin, it is a fact that due to high oxytocin content in the milk, the children are becoming adults in less than normal age, ad also there is abnormal growth of all vital organs mainly the breasts in male children also reported across the country. As such government must bring stringent law for the adulteration of milk in what so ever manner.

·        SIMPLE COST EFFECTIVE KIT FOR IDENTIFYING ADULTERATED / SYNTHETIC MILK FOR DETERGENTS, SODA MURA ETC

        Government must promote milk adulteration testing kits, which are cost effective, simple to operate by any one, at onsite testing by just putting a particular solution drops on filter paper and then milk drop is placed on the filter paper exactly on the top of the already made dot of the special solution, in case urea / synthetic milk then the solution droplet will turn to pale yellow, non adulterated natural milk will remain as it is without any colour change; the cost of test just 3 rupees, with kit cost 100 rupees for 30 tests; which can be used by house hold as well as milk collection centres, this was developed by Lala Lajpat Rai University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, College of Veterinary Sciences HISSAR, HARYANA, which was PATENTED PRODUCT. The kit test for any urea content above 0.2%, in the milk, where a 0.9 and above is the average urea of adulterated / synthetic milk. Like that any other similar cost effective tests should be encouraged by government; even every house hold can buy such kits and make use of them. Also it should be mandatory that Milk dairy associations should mandatorily establish sophisticated milk testing laboratories in all districts in first phase and all madals later stage for full analysis of milk. And it should be obligation on the part of the Milk dairy owner’s association to test the milk if any consumer demands for it.

·        MILK ADULTERATION, PREVENTION THROUGH SUPPLY OF PURE MILK TO CHILDREN IN ANGANWADIES, WELFARE HOSTELS, BPL FAMILIES; ALSO TAX CONCESSIONS/SUBSIDIES FOR SETTING UP OF MILK DAIRIES FOR CAPTIVE CONSUMPTION FOR COMMERCIAL USAGES

        In order to contain happing of adulteration of milk, such milk being consumed by children and old aged people who are more health risks due to adulterated milk consumption, government must ensure all measures to increase the milk production to a great extent by bringing the milk revolution through producing more milking cows through In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) and In Vitro Production (IVP) centres that cater embryo technologies to produce more milking cows through test tube. or may adopt any other latest developments in this sector.

        Also government must ensure all the welfare hostels, all anganwadi Kendra‟s, and all old aged homes, should be provided milking cows in appropriate number free of cost supplied by government. In order to maintain the cows, government must establish community cow centres, to be operated by the gram panchayat. It should be the duty of the Gram Panchayat to maintain the Rural Community Cow Centres (RCCC) and provide the milk to the above category people. It the responsibility of the Village revenue official (VRO) and Mandal Revenue officer (MRO) to monitor the supply of the milk to the welfare hostels, anganwadi Kendra‟s and the old aged homes, also ensure the RCCC is maintained hygienically etc. Also the government must provide free veterinary service for all the community cow centres. This measure ensures all the downtrodden children get proper proteins which will enhance their immunity and stamina, also all old aged people get milk for their good health; there should be proper accountability of the milk collected and supplied by creating accountability to the Gram panchayat and with proper checks and balances.

        Also government must make a long plan to ensure all BPL family members in India consume substantial quantities of Milk and milk based products, in order to achieve this Government must provide free of cost the milking cattle at each BPL family in the villages to be maintained in the Rural community cow centres (RCCC). In order to provide the cattle with nutritious feed to yield good milk production the government must provide the free seeds of high nutrient grass like Napier etc which has posses high nutrient values and resistant to pests (there is an acute shortage of green fodder over 60% and dry crop residues over 20%, as such the government must mandatorily allocate / reserve over 100 acres of land in every village for the cultivation of fodder to the cattle.) to be used in the CCC to be maintained by the Gram Panchayat. The cow ruminants (cow dung) should be used to produce the gober gas and the slurry can be used as a fertilizer to the nearby fields. As far as the urban poor is concerned the government must form the Urban Community Cow Centres (UCCC) in the villages adjacent to the towns and cities, near to high ways. All these UCCC should cater the needs of the children in the slum dwellings and the anganwadi Kendra‟s in the towns and cities. The maintenance of these UCCC should be the municipal administration as well as the group of the slum dwellers on rotation bases.

        In addition in order to reduce the bulk consumption of milk, government must make it mandatory that all the bulk milk consumption units such as hotels, restaurants, sweet centres, even for that matter the gated communities/ resident welfare societies, apartment complexes (more than 20 litres of milk use per day)etc can form an association and raise dairies or else raise their own dairies, in any case government must provide subsidies for such dairies for purely captive consumption with no trading of milk privately, there should be strict milk audit by the government veterinary department and the inventory of the milk produced, consumed etc should be on record online, real time data with government even in case of private captive consumption milk dairies.  In case of excess milk they can supply to the base milk pooling centres; all captive milk centres should be situated in the outskirts of the city. This measure will certainly reduce the demand to some extent.

        Also all milk based products whether manufactured in factories or sold in small places like curd, butter milk, ghee, pannier, ice crèmes, sweets, bakery products etc should get register with government, also should form associations among same fraternity. Also all the water used for processing should be RO for the manufacturers, small retail sale of butter milk, for processing of pannier, etc all these manufacturers should posses internal adulteration testing equipment and daily test the products before sale; also all the sale should be as far as possible packed and with sticker mentioning the manufactured date and time and expiry date.   

C)         OIL ADULTERATION

        Edible oils are essential in source of energy food for human beings for metabolism and building tissues. The consumption of edible oils directly linked to the income group, and also the demand for edible oil rises when the per capta income raises, & as GDP rises, as people prefer to eat more food prepared using edible oils. It is fact that there is wide gap of Edible oil production in India and demand for edible oil is so wide, and also there is huge demand for low cost oils due to affordability and price conscious BPL, LOW and low Middle, Middle middle income group people, traders, retailers are  en-cashing the situation with adulteration oils in the process traders are making some percentage of profits, but the consumers are paying several times the cost of saving of using low cost edible oil, in the form of health care expenditure, the per capta consumption of Edible oils in India are at 14.3 kg in 2013 with projected figures of 18 kg in 2021, with total of 17.5 million metric tones in 2013 to a projected requirement of 23.5 million metric tonnes, Even though government identified near about 2 million hectors of land in India are suitable for oil palm cultivation, but government able to encourage only 0.2 million hectors of cultivation till date, this is main reason that India depend on import of palm oil, also one of the indirect cause of oil adulteration maifia rise in India. So there is wide gap of product and demand which needs to b reduced. The statistic indicate India is a major importer of palm oil in the word, with India importing about 1/5 of the total production of palm oil in the world, with palm oil consumption is near about 50% of the total oil consumption in India (followed by soya bean oil 15%, mustard seed oil 12%, sunflower 6% coconut oil 6% and ground nut oil less than 1%) with major countries from which India imports palm oil are from Malaysia and Indonesia.

        One of the major reasons for adulterated oil/ sub standard oil in India is lack of government policy on mandatory requirement of import of only Certified Sustainable Palm Oil. The Certified sustainable palm oil (CSPO) is palm oil that has been grown on a plantation that has been managed and certified according to the principles and criteria of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), the independent agency  which ensures that Palm oil producers are certified through strict verification of the production process through stringent RSPO,  Principles ,  Criteria for Sustainable Palm Oil Production by accredited Certifying Bodies. All organisations in the supply chain that use RSPO certified sustainable oil products are audited to prevent overselling and mixing palm oil with conventional (or non-sustainable) oil palm products. Indian government should deal with Malaysia and Indonesia to ensure all oil palm growers in their country are CSPO and also to reduce the export tax on CSPO by these two countries. This will certainly reduce oil adulteration at the very base level. in addition there should be stricter import policies to have stringent quality control both at the exporting country end and also at the importing end to ensure standards are maintained, It is ideal that government of India conduct these quality audits (either with GOI staff or with some third party reputed international certifying agencies) at the exporting port as well as importing port before allowing the oil to refineries or factories for further.
 
        Also It is a fact and the demand supply gap making edible oils, also the cost variation between the palm oil and other sunflower refined oil etc are leading  to oil adulteration to a great extent, especially in the absence of stringent quality checks, and stringent punishments for adulteration, very heinously, just to make little money, the animal fats, dead animal left over’s are used to extract oil, which is either directly sold or mixed with the existing edible oil (like petrol & bio ethanol) and selling it to the public, this kind of adulterated products are sold mostly in the highway dabahs, road side food outlets, in the remote places, rural areas and shops which where situated in slums, weaker sections, low income group, also mostly there exists high chance for use of such adulterated/ contaminated oil’s in subsidised food canteens, welfare hostels for SC, ST, OBC Students (who are most vulnerable to this kind of oil adulteration)...,also in mass food preparations like railway’s, bus stands, etc and also in mass food preparations /offering in various functions organised by individuals or institutions or political parties etc (where they provide food preparation contract to caterers) also in messes where low cost, low profit food is served under compulsion. As it is a fact that oil consumption is a standard cost and when the adulterated oils are available for less than 50% of the original oil cost, then there are high chances that these kind of adulterated oils are in use in mass cooking.

        In order to reduce adulteration of oils, also to improve the health of common people, government  must make a long drawn plan for indigenous cultivation of other oil seeds like sunflower, and make them cost effective and affordable to common people by educating the people to shift towards refined oil for numerous multiple benefits, even though slightly expensive mat be for two litres consumption per month, of a family, the cost difference may not exceed 200 rs, but compared to the loss of income, expenditure in the long run due to use of non refined oil is several folds the  additional cost of using refined oil (ideal that government provide some subsidy on refined oil use by BPL, LOW income group people, also ideal that government supply only, for this government should enhance the import refined sun flower oil, reduce the palm oil import, additional burden can be shared by government and the people availing ration oil in fair price shops), as the refined sun flower oils has good poly unsaturated Fatty acid, less in mono unsaturated fatty acid content and also has a good aroma compared to other conventional oils like palm oil. (Also should be mandatory that all oil packs sold in fair price shops should be specially packed and in a clear transparent pack with separate bar coding for fair price shops, so that the oil from the fair price shops cannot be diverted to the open market, the oil sachets in fair price shops should be ranging from 50 gm to 500 gm so that those who cannot afford to buy at a time can take 50 gm sachet’s till their 2 litre quota is expired, this measure reduces lot of pilferage, diverting of stocks meant for the poor to the open market, also there should be a Virtual private network among the government departments  and all fair price shops for monitoring online real time sale.

To contain happing of OIL ADULTERATION the following measures are very necessary

        First place it should be mandatory that ban of sale of lose oil in the market even in KIRANA Shops (Mom & Pop stores); Like Shampoo sachets, Also it should be mandatory that oil should be packed and sold either in sachets or bottles or tins, with all the packs has 50% of the pack should be clear transparent on all sides to make a clear view of colour and texture of the oil packed, with all branding, details of the content, packing, bar coding etc should be within 50% space of the all sides of the packed oil sachets or bottles or tins (with complete ban of opaque packing, plastic or metal tins or sachets). Also there should be sachets of Edible oil as low as 25 gm so that BPL families, who used to buy loose oil, can purchase packed ones instead. All manufacturing units of Edible oil should have a manufacturers association which should do the quality certification of each manufacturing unit for equipment, process, production of each batch, also all manufacturing, packing should be under high resolution CC cameras with live web casting for public monitoring, in addition to monitoring by the control room of the oil manufactures association, also before production and after production all the edible oil carrying trucks should be electronic lock and GPRS and should be unlocked only in the designated places.  

        Also it should be mandatory that all Edible oil sachets, packs, bottles, tins should be bar coded and there should be an app in the mobile to read the bar coding, and the app should be free to download, by all, especially in the rural areas and also there should be an sms facility (all toll free) for basic quality check that if anyone sends the bar coding number they should be able to get return confirmation whether the product is manufactured by the company or not. Also it should be made mandatory that all manufacturers must provide the bar code numbers of the item supplied, quantity supplied to the retailers which should be saved in the central server when checked by any individual, it should provide the authenticity of the product as well as retailer and the packed date and expiry date; so that it ensures that bar codes cannot be duplicated, no expiry dated product can be sold in retail; the sms should be in regional languages/ voice message.  This measure will eliminate to a great extent the adulteration, and there is every possibility to contain duplicate of big brands /contra brand products circulation in market, also very stringent punishment for sale of contra brand products/ adulterated products.

        Also it should be mandatory for all commercial oil use like in food processing units like chips manufacturers, pickles manufacturers, hotels, restaurants, small or big should mandatorily maintain oil inventory and must submit to the government with date of purchase with bills and bar coding numbers, oil consumption, wastage; this measure eliminates use of low quality oil by the commercial use every week online, since it should be mandatory that all oil purchases should get bill in the name of the user the details for verification is easy, the details oil purchase bills and the bar coding of manufactures should match else they can find that adulterated oil use can be identified. this measure contains use of adulterated oil, also reduces the re use of used oils several times.

        Also the edible oil manufactures association should establish quality testing laboratories in all districts in India and should do the testing at free of cost in case of compliment, also rewards for those who provide information for oil adulteration, stringent punishments for all involved in oil adulteration, lose sale of oil, from manufacturer to the retailer. Also with non bail able   offence, with rigorous life imprisonment multiple times for those who manufacture, distribute, use the oils commercially, the oils manufactured from dead animal wastes. The above measures will certainly reduce the happening of oil adulteration to a great extent.

·        MANDATORY ISSUE & USE OF PROVISION DEBIT CARDS FOR PURCHASE OF GROCERIES, RATIONING /RESTRICTING USE OF EDIBLE OIL BY EVERY HOUSE HOLD

        Also ideal that government issue provision debit cards for all individual income earners in India (Ref my Document Un organised Employment to Organised Employment 2013 Mar), and make it mandatory that edible oil (also other oil related products like vanaspathi, ghee) should be purchased only through provision debit card (making it mandatory that all the retailers sell edible oil and other oil related raw products through provision debit card)  it is ideal that government fix maximum use of two 2 litres of Edible oil per family of four (two elders, two kids) even though the per capta use of Edible oil in India is just 14 kg, still majority of the urban population are prone to heart diseases, obesity, and other diseases are due to excessive oil consumption, use at home, so on every additional purchase after two litres of Edible oil, So in ordr to reduce the excess use oil by section of population , government must levy additional 4 times the cost of the normal rate of each additional litre use of oil by the individual household, as the provision debit card will be submitted to their income provider every month, and every year automatic audit  should be made for each provision debit card. (the provision debit card should have details of family members , with details of the provision debit cards f other family members) This measure inculcated judicious use of Edible oils by the individual households, which leads to reduction of lot of health discords especially fat related, cholesterol related like heart attacks, obesity etc. Also this measure reduces the oil imports by India to a considerable extent.

D)        FRUIT & VEGETABLE ADULTERATION

·        FRUIT ADULTERATION

        It is fact that India is the second largest fruit producing country in the world with annual fruit production of over 9 million tonnes of fruits ever year, with over 10% growth every year, and it is a fact fruits provide essential vital nutrients, but still for majority population in India the fruits of eating fruits is a jackpot, as fruits become higher income group diet in India, also it is fact due to lack of proper storage and transportation facilities fruits are getting rotten, even whatever available in the markets, especially in the urban areas most of the fruits are artificially ripened.
        Its really pity that the main fruit in India is banana which is otherwise all season fruit and also poor people’s meals is fully subjected to artificial ripening, since the ripe bananas has short shelf life due to the transportation, storage and other reason the fruits are plucked when it is raw, much before it is about ripen naturally, this will forcing the traders to ripen artificially by using the chemicals like calcium carbide, similarly traders/vendors are ripening other fruits like mangoes, papaya, apples etc which are regularly consumed by people, apart from seasonal fruits like checkoo/sapota etc. These artificial ripened fruits have chemicals, though used in small amounts; the chemicals used for artificial ripening contain carcinogens, arsenic and phosphorus which cause cancer.

        In order to contain artificial repining of fruits in India, governments must enforce the “Food Safety and Standards Act 2006 (Rules 2011) which imposed ban of artificial repining of fruits, also it is ideal to amend the law for more stringent punishments for fruit adulteration, also stringent punishments for persons selling calcium carbide for the fruit vendors. Also should ban sale of calcium carbide in open market as it is an industrial raw material used in production of acetylene gas which is used for welding and many other purposes. Also to bring public awareness about the artificial ripening, to identify the artificial ripened fruits through the appearance of the fruits (will be shiny, flawless in appearance) and if felt the symptoms of poisoning include vomiting, diarrhoea, burning or tingling sensation, numbness, headache and dizziness etc, so that they can alert the authorities to act up on; which can reduce happening of artificial ripening.

        In order to identify the fruit sellers and impose the fine, enforce law for artificial ripening, it should be mandatory that all fruit sellers should register with government, government provide licence to carry out the trade, also the details of fruit sellers will be in the web, so that anyone who wish to buy fruits can get details of their nearby fruit seller, this will create additional market for the individual fruit sellers.  Also it should be made mandatory that all whole sale fruit and vegetable markets should be under CC camera surveillance, and government implement the Swatch Bharat Abhyan first in all fruit and vegetable markets across the country on priority bases, (the daily waste generated in the vegetable and fruit markets should be disposed to recycle to manufacture vermi compost to be transported to the nearby villages for use in cultivation)  and also there should be regular inspections (also surprise inspections) by government as well as citizens group in the market yards to find the out artificial ripening, and it should be the responsibility of the traders to allow for inspection in camera recording. Also government must impose stringent punishments for using artificial ripening of fruits or selling artificial repining fruits in India.


·        BANNING CULTIVATION OF VEGETABLES, ESPECIALLY LEAFY VEGETABLES USING POLLUTED WATERS / DRAINAGE/CONTAMINATED  WATER

        Also government must ban cultivation of leafy vegetables in the urban areas, sub urban areas adjacent to or near to or open drainages, or any areas where the water is fully contaminated, or where the industrial effluents are let in the open field or the industrial effluents are getting discharged. Also it should be the responsibility of the villagers, people to complain to the authorities if found that in their locality the effluents from the nearby industries getting discharged in the fresh waters or in the cannel streams or in their drainage lines, or banks of the lakes, rivers where stagnated water persists and poisonous weeds are naturally get growing; also government must announce rewards for people informing about the cultivation of vegetables, especially leafy vegetables using the polluted waters or using the drainage water to the authorities, there should be special toll free number for this purpose to contact the authorities, and they should on inspection found the cultivation, they should destroy the same immediately and file a non bail able  case against those who are involved in this. Also government must ban artificial colouring of the vegetables at any level; government must provide extra subsidies for organic growing (gradual increase of organic fertilizers and reduction of use of chemical fertilizers, recently ARUNCHAL PRADESH announced that its going to be complete organic farming in the entire state soon, Government must have long drawn plan to convert maximum cultivation in India to organic cultivation.

        Also it should be made mandatory that all vegetable retailers should get registered with government, and obtain licence to do vegetable trade; also it should be duty and responsibility of the shop keepers who are selling the vegetables, especially the leafy vegetables the source of the vegetables, i.e who is the farmer, their farming land location, source of water for the cultivation in their farm etc. without the details; in case the retailers buy from the whole sellers, then the details of the whole sellers,  and then it should be the responsibility of the whole seller who is procuring the raw material i.e vegetables, especially leafy vegetables from the farmers with either farmer ID card number or their Voter Id card number and all payments should be made online in their bank account.    

·        MEASURES FOR INCULCATING FRUIT EATING HABITS IN INDIA.

        Also government must encourage fruit chat sellers in every nook and corner in the country, make a habit to the people of the country, especially the youth to consume fruits lot than the so called junk foods, government must make it mandatory for establishing fruit chat centres in all educational institutions, all work places, all hospitals, all transport centres like railways, bus stations,, government  should provide concessions or un employed to start portable (mobile fruit chat) in very junctions in the urban, rural areas, in addition to  highway junctions, high way rest centres etc and in all major centres across length and breadth of India, taking the spirit from Kolkata where fruit chat is available in every nook and corner at very affordable, economic rates. This measure not only provides employment to several lakhs of people directly and indirectly, also improves the health of millions of people.

·        MEASURES TO CONTAIN ADULTERATION / SUB STANDARD PACKAGED FRUIT JUICES.

        Also since there is rise in packaged fruit juices, it’s very necessary that all the packaged fruit juices manufactures adhere to stringent quality control process in weeding out the sub stand fruits, vegetables for making the juices; the total production, sale of fruit juices in India are over 230 Million litres including packaged as well as fresh juices, with packaged juices account for over 3.4 million letters,  with average of meagre 20 ml per capta consumption of fruit juices in India as against over 35 litres in developed countries like USA, Germany etc. the packaged fruit juices are mostly in the metros and tire 1 cities, and evolving market, government must make stringent quality control as well as mandatory bar coding, date of manufacturing, date of expiry, identifying the adulterated, soiled juices, displayed in very packaged fruit juices retailers, also the bar coding should provide the details of retailer, sold etc; there is lot of scope for fruit juices manufacturing locally like like local mineral water plants in small scale in the coming future from the available local fruits. This will not only reduce the wastage of fruits due to lack of storage, but also improves the health of people, in addition to employment generation to several people, In addition, it saves lot of people from fruit adulteration side effects on health of the consumers. also all fruit juice manufacturers  should get registered with government under one place, in the web with details of manufacturing facility, the input materials, the processing, quality control, bar coding of packs etc etc with quality audit by the manufacturers association to reduce adulteration of packaged fruit juices.  Also ideal that all local fresh fruit sellers, fruit chat sellers, all fresh juice sellers locally must get web connectivity, and the should be able to deliver to homes if people order for in their respective territory of 1 to 2 km radius, which will create additional revenues to them, also people get fruits at their door step.

E)         NON VEGETARIAN ADULTERATION

·        NON-VEGETARIAN RAW FOOD (LIKE MEAT) ADULTERATION

        As we all knew that majority of the Indians are non-vegetarian consumers majority of them consume either goat or lamb, chicken or other birds like duck, eemu birds. Since there is no specific standards for the meat sellers, majority of the meat sellers do not follow standards and sell the meat in un-hygienic conditions, some of them sell the meat mixed with other animal meats like beef, like that chicken is mixed with vulcher meet etc.  Because of consuming adulterated meat/ sub standard meat, millions of people are getting serious health disorders.

        In order to stream line the non veg market, Government must make it mandatory that all non vegetarian raw sellers, all processed non-vegetarian sellers should be registered with government. Also only at select locations they should sell the non vegetarian foods like meat, chicken, fish, etc in every village or ward, not everywhere at the will and wish of the seller. Also all those retailers in the non veg market should be trained for maintaining hygienic habits, The non vegetarian market should be every hourly cleaned, every day sterilized and sure the streets are clean, with no kind of odours. Also the vendors should handover waste products to Govt. The waste in the non veg market should be treated on par with bio medical waste and disposed in the similar manner; Only hygienically processed non vegetarian can be allowed to sell in retail market within the retail shops/ super market; all the packaged non vegetarian manufacturers should be under CC camera surveillance with non veg packaged food association audit for quality processing, in addition to government audit.  Also the non veg market should be periodically inspected by the food authorities for the quality / freshness of the material sold in the market.

        Also Since majority of the restaurants are serving the stored bacteria generated stale non vegetarian food. Especially the so called Chinese food stalls, and Biraini points, just prepare the dishes with sub standard or waste products of meat, stale meat,  processing and add spices to not get the rotten smell, millions of downtrodden people are getting severe health disorders due to this kind of food consumption, these kind of stalls may also use the oils adulterated with oils which are extracted from animal wastes because it comes dead cheap for then just may be 20 to 30 Rs per litre which is much cheaper than conventional oil, since the  BPL, low income group people especially the bachelors, forced bachelors, migrant labour, and those who consume alcohol/ cheap liquor are suffering due to this adulteration, as they wish to consume non vegetarian at very economical price, without knowing that why should they get at that cheap rate such a food. As such government must issue the mandatory hygienic conditions to be maintained, measures for containing the non-vegetarian food adulteration, as it causes acute health disorders; in order to contain use of rotten/ soiled non vegetarian, waste non vegetarian, it should be made mandatory that all the restaurants using non vegetarian should mandatorily submit online daily stock position government health department, there should be surprise checks every week in all large consumption restaurants to do physical audit and inspection of stock, quality of stock. Also it is ideal that all non veg raw food vendors should be given hand held billing machine, within built software that the licence number and it should be mandatory to take mobile number of the purchaser and mandatory bill to be issued, to be obtained by all commercial users of no-vegetarian, also it is ideal that there should special electronic cards for purchasing the non veg, so that everyone fill the card with required money and the swipe machine at the non veg vendor will swiped to pay the price for the quantity.  For those who do not wish to take cash less card, should get daily coins at the entrance of the non veg market, so that there will not be by cash transactions within the market premises and the cash will not get bacteria’s, also stricter punishments for adulteration of non veg foods. This measure will certainly useful for many, it will contain to great extent the adulteration of non vegetarian.

F)         READY TO USE SPICES ADULTERATION

        Its a fact that majority of the dishes in Indian uses Turmeric power, Chilli Powder, Coriander Powder and Garlic Ginger paste; its a fact that most of the packaged powders are adulterated, by local manufactures, or duplicating the original brand.  

        Turmeric power which is used widely by almost all Hindu Rituals by the Hindu Women for personal use as a facial and also used in almost all culinary preparation in India is eating the fine grounded saw dust mixed with Yellow Colour. Or Yellow ochres metal power Its has serious long term impact on the health of the individuals

        The Chilli Powder is the most adulterated item, most of the chilli power is mixed with artificial colours, and also Saw dust etc

        The Ginger Garlic paste which is widely used in India, especially in Rural areas, which the calcium carbide mixed with some chemicals are made to get the pate and using the essence to get the smell of the original paste. A mixture of Iodine and Calcium, along with rotten garlic and rotten ginger, and adding acids for long shelf life, also making contra brands and selling at very nominal prices, which has very serious impact on health, intestines, liver and cause jaundice and other serious health disorders.

        Also due to rapid urbanisation and busy life most of the people are not able to prepare even raw material for Indian foods like Idlies,  Dosas, Roties etc which the barters are available in ready packs, which may also subjected to adulteration.  

        So in order to contain all kinds of adulteration all those packaged products has to follow the same procedure of bar coding, cc camera surveillance of manufacturing, packing, details of batch wise, retailer wise stock, in addition details of territorial sale of the brand on the web, sms / mobile app identification of bar code, retailer, sale etc, quality control by same manufacturers association, government etc will certainly contain adulteration of the spices. Also the public awareness should be created for identifying the adulteration of spices powered or mixtures, through simple tests at their home.

·        COMPLETE MONITORING OF IMPORTED FOOD PRODUCTS FOR QUALITY, STANDARDS, ALSO WITH MANDATORY AGREEMENT FOR PENALTY AS PER INDIAN LAWS FOR HEALTH RISKS DUE TO SUB STANDARD/ SPURIOUS IMPORTED FOOD PRODUCTS.

        Also in case of imported packaged products, the government must ensure each batch of the imported products should go for testing in Indian laboratories, in addition government must make it mandatory that for all packaged food imports, government must insist the manufactures to start make in India if economic viability else they should allow Indian quality control persons to inspect and also make the video of the processing of the batches that are going to be exported to India, or else they may start a manufacturing unit in their own country where the raw material is cheap, plenty, and there should be permanent Indian quality control staff, with live web casting of the manufacturing process. In addition they should do Indian Bar coding on all products that are going to be exported to India, so that Indian food authorities as well as tax authorities have full control of sale of imported food products in India, in addition the manufactures who are exporting to India should sign an agreement for liability of the manufacturer as per INDIAN LAWS in case of any substandard, product cases health risks; without this agreement government should not permit any kind of imports from any country, all supermarkets, five star hotels, etc are barred from importing packaged food from other countries without this agreement. 

        All the products imported / manufactured in India sold in packs should possess bar coding, in case of its difficult to make bar coding on very small sized packs like toffees, small chocolates, one rupee shampoo packs etc the lot can be packed in bundles, jars and the sealed and the jars, bundle packs should get bar coded, and inventory should be made (even though just one rupees satchels shampoo market in India is more than 2 billion INR or over 10,000 crores); this measure of bundle bar coding selling in a bundle pack will certainly be of great use in identifying the manufacturer, date of pack, expiry, the retailer etc.

        Also government must make it public the imported food products category wise, the retail sale, the bar coding numbers of the imported packed food, the availability at which retailer, and also making it mandatory for the retailer to update  the the sale transaction periodically to the government.





2)          MEASURES FOR HYGIENIC & HEALTHY FOOD

·        HYGIENIC READY MEADE FOOD AT RESTAURANTS, FOOD COURTS, CANTEENS ETC

        Also it should be made mandatory that all the restaurants and canteens the food preparation areas/kitchens, food storage areas, should be installed with high resolution the CC cameras in multiple numbers and should be integrated to the website of the food adulteration prevention department for the public view and the scrutiny by the officials. Like the traffic police observing the CC footage remotely and acting on violations, the food inspection officials will monitor all the food preparations from the start of the preparation to the cleaning of the food preparation area in the closing time should be observed closely. Also the same feed should go the restaurants association for further monitoring at their end.  Also the restaurants, food processing units should mandatorily submit the water, milk, oil usage bills online to the government. This method will certainly help in achieving the better results.

·        MEASURES FOR HYGIENIC STREET FOOD

        Also the governments should give more focus on the maintenance of hygienic of street foods preparation & serving, as many of them are causing severe health disorders. To regulate the street food sale it should be mandatory for the the street food sells to get registered locally with the food authorities to obtain the licence card. Also there should be mobile teams to have regular and periodic inspection of street food vendors for the quality, preparation in hygienic atmosphere, use of water filtered water, use of standard edible oil etc and more important about the health condition of the perpetrators and the server of the street food should be observed for skin deceases, any communicable deceases etc and all unhygienic outlets should be seize immediately and allow them to continue after maintain the standards.

        Also there should be designated areas for street food selling, with stricter punishments for setting up of and selling street food at the place according to the will and wish of the seller, violating the norms... all street food sellers must get regular health check up for them by the government doctors on the mobile team. All street food sellers should undergo training secession for maintaining hygiene-ity; also government must make a study of the present demand for street food, identify the areas, whether they can adjust the area for designating as street food area or not, identify whether RO water is available, waste disposal, hand wash, toilet facility for the staff, visitors etc and also how much air pollution it will cause due to food preparation in that locality, how much traffic will be there, whether there is ample parking facility required/ exists etc, also complete ban of movement motored vehicles in the food streets, only pedestrians  can visit. Also there should be proper mechanisms in place to install chimneys in such a way that most of the fumes from the food preparations should be let out at higher levels in the open air after due filtration of air for oils and other suspended micro particles; also at the food streets and surroundings government must rise trees like Neem, Eucalyptus etc based on the local conditions to ensure more greenery prevails on the food street as well as surroundings of the food street.

        As it is a fact without these just like that allowing street food to mushroom will create lot of health hazards in multiple ways. Also the public should be thought to behave responsibly by fining the public for throwing the left over’s, waste papers etc on the road instead of designated waste baskets/containers; for this all the street food centres should be under high resolution multiple CC camera Surveillance and there should be a control room in every municipality to monitor and alert the public through public loud speakers; this will be perfect swatch Bharat mission... also this CC cameras monitoring make the street food makers behave more responsibly and also make them more ethical and honest in their approach; also there should be strict ban of smoking , consumption of alcohol, consumption of tobacco, pan in the street food areas and ban of spitting on the roads in the street food areas. Also this eliminates that no street food vendor, supplier will be un hygienic (Couple of years back in pune one of the pani puri vendor  habituated to urinated in the tumbler and used the same tumbler for serving the panipuri, a girl videoed the same from her apartment which is adjacent to the vendor.. like this kind of persons many as they do not want to leave the business place, in case they get urgent urine etc they do the same... also they may not clean the utensils or may be un healthy with communicable diseases like sever cold, cough, skin diseases, STD and scratching everywhere including in the gore-ions region,  and use the same hand for food preparation all these can be avoided for real hygienic street food; also making it mandatory for every street food stall there should be minimum of four people, one for cash collection, one for service of food, one for cleaning of the utensils, one for preparing the food. This measure will create not only employment, but also ensures people get hygienic food at affordable prices.

        Also government must make it mandatory that all street food vendors should be provided with mobile app for mobile cash, and anyone can transfer the money, also there should be a facility that government must provide special plastic coins, open electronic swipe cards for the public with fixed denominations with initial fee and they can recharge the same with mobile money or bank card or at any of the designated places, exclusively for street food so that there is no need for cash transactions at the street food centres and it is fact that most of the money circulated (rupee notes) in the street food centres contain millions of bacteria; this measure ensures financial discipline in the street food vendors;   all the above measures will be a real win win for both street food vendors as well as common public.

        Also most important is that the governments should control the food stalls in the public places like bus stations, rail stations and more specifically at the pilgrim places of all religions where mass movement is existence and short stay or eat and move, which are the main centres where substandard, unhygienic conditions of the food preparations are in existence. This has long run impact on the health of the people who are consuming food at such places, such food consumption leads to gastro entities, hepatitis. The CC cameras should be made available in these places of food preparation and service in all the public places mentioned above, with live web casting.

        The governments has to realise the fact that small expenditure in the regulating the existing conditions, for ensuring strict implementation of law, rules and regulations in food sector will certainly help in a great extent towards the achievement of health care for all. Also the state governments should prepare a white paper on number staff in the food  control department, the periodic inspection chart, the staff is adequate proportionate to the existing food processing industries and food outlets, also the municipal staff adequate to the amount of garbage, drainage, sewage facility maintenance, are the health & sanitation staff are adequate proportionate to the restaurants and canteens and food processing industries and to prevent the adulteration in the food products, what are the steps taken for containing the adulteration of food products, what are the checks and balances and accountability of the officials involved in the above process etc.

·        RESTRICTIONS ON RE USE OF ALREADY USED OIL IN ALL COMMERCIAL FOOD OUTLETS

        Also there should be restrictions on re use of already used oil, in the food preparation, either in the food processing units or in restaurants; there should be standard norms for use of different oils, for different applications, there should be limit for maximum number times an oil is reusable, standard methods to identify the used oil to discard (based on colour, texture/ thickness/ viscosity etc) a maximum of two times re use of oil permitted in general, (i.e one first time and one more time)and third time on wards the oil should be discarded from using in food preparations; this measure ensures  reduction of several heath disorder, as reusing oil can create free radicals which cause ailments in the long run. ‘Free radicals attach themselves to healthy cells and lead to diseases. These free radicals can be carcinogenic i.e. can cause cancer and also atherosclerosis which can lead to increase in bad cholesterol levels, blocking the arteries.’ Some other potential health risks of reusing oil include, Acidity, Heart disease, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, Irritable throat (due to inhalation), due to re use of same heated oil for several times, (chips, snacks, especially non veg snacks,  etc where the deep fries are done heating the same oil for several times after once it is completely brought to room temperature), also different oils have different smoke point temperatures, so once used the oil, the smoke point temperature of that oil will get reduced, so on the re use if the oil gives smoke, then its indication that that oil should be discarded.

        Also it should be ideal that government make it mandatory that all manufacturers of oil provide details of best use of oil, how to identify the oil to discard after reuses, in addition it should be mandatory to display the photographs, steps, of how to identify the re-used oil, time to discard the re used oil, by the common public, whether it is in restaurants, or small road side shops should mandatorily display the same near the kitchen. Also there should be stringent punishments starting with heavy fine, to rigorous imprisonment for violation of this measure. As it is a fact that Cancers are on rise in INDIA, which need to take all preventive measures. So there should be standard chart with photographs of colour change of different re used oils, smoke points, measures to identify the time to time to discard the reused oil, etc in every restaurant; Also there should be public awareness about the need for discarding the heated used oil, and use the oil judiciously at home, not to use the once heated oil several times.

        Also for all the commercial food processing units, like chips, wafers etc manufacturers, and in restaurants, even the road side pokada shops should mandatorily file monthly use of oil/ oil consumption with bills of purchase should be submitted to the food inspection department of that district, also all the food processing industry units associations should set standards of quantity of use based on the process.

·        MANDATORY HENCE FORTH ALL KITCHENS IN RESTAURANTS TO BE IN GLASS CHAMBERS, MUST BE OPEN TO PUBLIC FOR INSPECTION FOR ENSURING HYGIENIC PREPARATIONS

        Also it should be made mandatory that hence forth all the food preparation areas should be in full clear glass chambers/ rooms with public display and public should be allowed to view/ go and inspect the food preparation area of all food processing units and also restaurants, it should be non bail able crime to deny the right to view/ visit/ inspect the kitchen/ food preparation area. All the kitchens should be hygienic all the time.

·        MANDATORY HEALTH CHECK UP FOR PEOPLE WORKING IN FOOD PROCESSING INDUSTRY

        Also it should be mandatory that the chefs, the assistants to chefs, the persons who works in the kitchens and the persons who are serving the food, at the packing of the food should mandatorily undergo periodic health check up regarding any communicable diseases;  it should be the duty of the individual to inform to the manager of the food processing industry/ restaurant regarding any illness / diseases such as flue/ viruses sneezing/ running nose/ loose motions or any skin diseases, STD etc  daily before reporting to duty, also it should be the responsibility of the management to maintain health records of all people working in food industry and with periodic in house health check up by the management at the expenses of the management for check up and providing clearance certification for not having any such diseases which will be a threat to others if the worker performs duty.

·        MANDATORY WEARING OF HAND GLOVES, APRON, NOSE & MOUTH MASK, HEAD COVER WHILE PREPARING FOOD

        Also it should be made mandatory that all people who are involved in food preparation, (including cleaning, cutting, stirring etc) and serving at all places whether in companies or small MSME/ SHG / individuals, or in five star restaurants or small snack/Tiffin centres on road side they should follow the condition of wearing the appropriate clean, hygienic hand gloves, mouth& nose apron, and full apron. Also it should be made mandatory that they should take full head bath before entering the food preparation process with option to perform their religious rituals before cooking.

·        MANDATORY STERILISATION OF UTENSILS IN ALL RESTAURANTS, FOOD EATERIES, COMPLETE BAN ON USE OF POLYETHYLENE BAGS FOR PACKING FOOD PACKING, USE OF PAPER PLATES WHICH CONTAIN BLEACHING AGENTS.

        Also it is fact that most of the food serving places in the restaurants just clan the plates with limited water availability (other than five star restaurants), especially in the small and medium restaurants, and also in most tea stalls, most road side food eateries, most serve the food in the same plate, glass, multiple times which are just dipped in the water and dried by wiping with wet cloth to look like fresh, or even some do not do even this just put in limited water and allow them to dry and same limited water being used multiple times to clean multiple utensils, also some small food outlets just serve the food in paper plates (which are mostly recycled paper, and such paper plates contain harmful chemicals like dioxin which is used as bleaching agent for whitening of the paper pulp), also most of the tea stalls serve the tea hot in small plastic glass,  also some serve the hot oil fried Pakorads, Samosas etc in printed news papers, also most of them serve Bhel Puri  with lemon juice squeezed in it is served in news papers, Also in most road side / small ready to eat cooked food serving centres even though situated in metros near the so called multinational software companies they service the hot food may be very hygienic and tasty but served in steel plates or plastic plates with putting one colourless polyethylene sheet on that plate, to use the plate multiple times without wash, just by throwing the polyethylene paper and wipe the plate with cloth and ready to re use for them, its rely silly that the so called software professionals who earn high pocket salaries without knowing the harmful effects eats almost daily the same, after all the hot food served in thin polyethylene causes lot of health disorders due to dilute harmful chemicals go along with the food to the consumer, also similar way most of the high income earning so called business people get hot tea in plastic polyethylene bags;  it’s really a dangerous as most of them contain harmful chemicals, also  food served, raped  in the news papers causes health hazards as printing ink is a chemical, plus most of the news papers are fully recycled papers, with dust being used ones,  causes long term effects on the people who are eating in this manner. So government must fist ban manufacture of polyethylene glass, in addition use of plastic glass for serving the tea, in addition government must ban manufacturing of paper cups, paper plates which contain bleaching power, only eco friendly paper cups, paper plates which do not contain bleaching agents can be permitted to use, in addition complete ban on serving, packing ready to eat food on news papers.

        Also government must make it mandatory that all food serving should be done in either ceramic crockery or in steel or glass utensils only, in addition all food preparing, serving utensils must be sterilised, the best and simple method is most traditional way to sterilize all forms of cooking equipment is to boil them in boiling water. Adding some salt to the water will help in the disinfecting process and it will slightly increase the boiling temperature of the water.  Also caustic soda also can be used for sterilisation. Also government must ensure all fruit juice centres serve the juices either in disposable glasses or should sterilize the glasses before serving. The advantage of this system is that the utensils can be used immediately after sterilization after minimum of thirty minutes to boil before it is safe to take them out.  Also it should be made mandatory that all government schools, welfare hostels, all canteens, in work place, hospitals should mandatorily sterilise the utensils for cooking and serving food every time, Also stringent punishments for violation of these norms.  

        Also it should be made mandatory that water use audit should be mandatory for all the restaurants and food eateries where they should have sufficient water for getting permission to run the restaurant or food eatery even the street food eatery. Also it should be made mandatory that all food courts and road site food eateries should mandatorily use the appropriate dust bins, also ensure that municipal authorities make clean or else they should form association and employ some Safai Karmacharies to clean the area, also there should not be any garbage or open drainage in the food outlets.  Also it should be made mandatory that no workers in the restaurants, food courts should sleep on the restaurant premises where people eat food, food prepared, unless otherwise they have special provision for sleeping within the premises. All these measure will certainly improve lot of health of millions of people.
·        MEASURES TO REDUCE USE OF PLASTIC IN FOOD UNITS,BY COMMON PEOPLE; MOBILE APP FOR REPORTING TO GOVT TO PREVENT USE

        Also in order to reduce the use of plastic, also to ensure better products are sold especially the perishable items like vegetables, fruits etc, the government must ban packaging of vegetables in any retail out lets, including the super markets. This measure ensures people get quality vegetables, graded vegetables, and the environment pollution due to plastic will get reduce, also people get choice to chose, and they get satisfaction. As it is fact that most of the retailers who are selling the packaged raw vegetables/ fruits are putting/mixing/adulterating certain percentage of about to perish, or of sub standard quality products and packing and selling, by this it is not only loss to consumers, but also there is health risk for the consumers. Also government must ban packing or serving hot foods / fluids in plastic plates, glasses.

        Also government must create an app for the reporting on use of plastic bags by the vendors as well as common public, and once any one click the photograph using this app, it should automatically get up loaded to the concerned local authorities so that local authorities for further action on the person selling/ using the plastic bags. Also there should be stringent punishment for the manufacturers and retailers of the plastic/ polyethylene bags, Also heavy fine for the individual users; Also government must provide concession for jute bags and cloth bags manufacturing, purchase; also to the paper bags; This measure will not only reduce the use of plastic bags, protecting environment, but also improves the hygienic surroundings in line with SWATCH BHARAT.

·        BAN OF READY MADE MODERN FAST FOODS, AERATED DRINKS IN EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS, WORK PLACES, AND HOSPITALS AND EVEN IN RAILWAY STATIONS, BUS STATIONS, AIRPORTS

        Also government must ban sale of aerated cool drinks in educational  institutions, work place canteens, hospitals, even in railway stations, bus stations, and on highway junctions, as it is fact that its really tedious in journeys and at that time what is required is fruit juices, butter milk etc which provide nutrients to the body to provide energy and reduce strain, not the aerated cool drinks, its up to the travellers if they carry with them, but government must ensure no aerated drinks availed in the railway stations, bus stations, and all highway food courts; only fruit juices, fresh juices, or fresh fruits, and some healthy snacks which are air fried, or INDIAN traditional food should be available for sale in these places, with complete ban of sale of fast foods, deep fry foods etc in these areas. Also government must ban sale of so called small eats in the immediate vicinity of the educational institutions, pan shops, cigarette shops, alcohol beverage shops in addition coffee shops that provide liquor, mild alcoholic beverages like beer should not be permitted within 500 meters radius of the educational institutions, also in the vicinity of the railway stations, bus stations and all high way junctions.

        Also all government, private organisations, schools, collages with certain number of employees (say 500 and above, all hospitals with more than 100 visitors per day)  should mandatorily maintain a canteen facility/ food sale outlet within the premises of the organisation; (all those other organisations can maintain canteens or get food from akshiya patra foundation like organisations on regular contract bases), also it should be made mandatory that in such office canteens the lunch should be provided to all the employees in work place, by mandatorily deducting from salary for the lunch (50% cost of the lunch, remaining 50% should be beard by the employer), so that most of the employees get quality nutritious food during the lunch, it also eliminates burden for the house hold to prepare lunch box to the working person, as it is fact that most of the working persons skip lunch, especially working in private companies, more specifically the software employees, instead they just adjust with some fast food; this leading to serious health disorders for them. Also it should be the responsibility of the employer to provide Tea and Healthy snacks during tea break to rejuvenate employees to work more dedicatedly.

3) MEASURES FOR STRINGENT QUALITY CONTROL, OF ALL PACKAGED PROCESSED FOOD

        In order to ensure stringent quality control there should be a virtual private network of manufacturer, distributor and retailers for sale of all packaged food either raw/processed FMCG products or this should be open to public.  Also this measure ensures that how much quantity of products manufactured and how much products sold, what is left in the stock, and it enables the quality check staff to identify the excess stock at retailers/ distributors as contra brand/ adulterated products. Also it should be mandatory on the part of the manufacturers association of a particular product to create a quality control team, and also should have a centralised monitoring of the process of manufacture among the same fraternity of products, to view the live web cam and maintain to monitor the process by a team of quality control among the association members (this is in addition to government quality control)

Also there should be four tire quality control systems in place

1)          Internal Quality Control by the manufacturer daily, the quality of raw material, the hygienic conditions of the manpower, machine, surroundings, and the every batch of the finished product manufactured.

2)          From among the manufacturers association of the same type of product, every batch of finished product out from each manufacturer at their labs, in addition quality checks at the premises of the each manufacturer half yearly, and on daily bases the hygienic conditions of food storage, processing, packing through online real time web cc camera monitoring.

3)          State government quality control collecting samples of all brands once in six months from all districts in the state and test of all packaged foods products.

4)          Central government quality control, Collect the samples of all brands once in in a year from all states

        Also government must make it mandatory that all industries other than MSME should possess latest quality testing & quality control laboratories, they should display in their website and also should mandatorily file returns regarding the quality control equipment they are possessing and also  the qualified / certified quality control staff in that organisation, this should be more particular in all processed food industries; also it should be mandatory hence forth that every processed food industry should employ one qualified nutritionist, and qualified food expert (like every pharmacy retailer /medical shop requires one qualified pharmacist); also there should be private / mature/ independent nutritionist to certify the content for calories on each packaged food that is done in MSME with turnover of the company/firm not exceeding ten lakh per annum. Also it should be mandatory that all companies including MSME should year mark 5% of their turnover for the quality control/ quality testing/ quality certification and hygiene manufacturing certification.

        Also there should be quality Control certification for MSME/SHG products in the rural areas, so its very need of the hour that Government set up high tech quality control laboratories in each district in the first phase and in almost each Mandal/ Block in second phase, this should be a common Quality Testing Lab with powers to issue certification for the products of processed food. This labs also for acting against complaints for failure of quality standards; this measure not only ensures quality food is available for the people of INDIA but also it provides to employment to several thousand/ lakhs of people across the country.; when government is planned to do Soil testing Laboratories across the country then the quality testing laboratories in each district and mandal should not be an issue to the government.

        It’s a fact that due to establishing quality testing laboratories and ensuring quality food either raw/ processed made available to people in INDIA there will be a drastic improvement in health of the people of the country, especially the youth of the country, thus there will a great reduction in the expenditure on health care by the individuals in the country, in addition due to good health and fitness, the quality of work improves, hence the production improves to a great  due to better utilisation, enhanced millions man-hours. This improves GDP and thus the progress and development of individual as well as Nation occurs. Thus Government must focus on quality control; quality testing and quality certification of each and every field, especially the food sector and it can provide tremendous positive results in INDIA.  for this there should be training courses in quality control in each sector. This will not only provide employment, but also ensures over all development of heath of individuals as well as nation

        If the quality control and quality testing are of the International standards then there is every scope for improvement of IMPORTS BY OTHER COUNTRIES for the products manufactured in INDIA.  Also when INDIA is competing with the developed nation why the people of the INDIA should eat / consume sub standard products. Also the quality control Labourites should perform rigorous quality checks for the products imported, so that sub standard products from any country be sold in INDIA, especially in food sector/ processed food.

        Also the measure of bar coding of consumer products and putting on the web the details of products in circulation with retailers will make the job of the central and state sales tax departments to just click the button to identify the turnovers of the products, (in case those products which do not have bar coding like fresh vegetables etc ; the list of non bar code-able products should be made by the government) will ensure maximum percentage of turnover of the retailers can be covered. The tax collection can be enhanced; also it reduces adulterated food to a great extent.

·        MANDATORY QUALIFIED/ CERTIFIED QUALITY CONTROL PERSONS IN EVERY RESTAURANT

        Also it should be mandatory henceforth that every restaurant in India should have one quality controller cum nutritionist to certify the food raw material is quality and the food prepared (process of food preparation with ingredients) adhere to safety standards with all ingredients like salt, sugar,  etc are well within the limits of normal human consumption, in case of so called special dishes there should be clear indication of warning of excess of sugar, salt etc; also it should be made mandatory that all food preparations for ready to eat perishable stock with no shelf life of few hours of shelf life (like breakfast, snacks, lunch items), should indicate the quantity of these basic substances each item wise and also in total printed on the menu card. Displayed on the table in a book let form.

        In case of street food/ fast food joints, they should clearly display at the board about the ingredients quality, permissible limits as per standards in each item wise, the Oil used, the bills for the purchase of oil, milk etc for public understanding and scrutiny. And daily board display of use of fresh oil, from seal pack and not adulterated one, with purchase details, so that the visitors can verify in the details are genuine or not by clicking the mobile app; also it should be made mandatory that all oil purchases for commercial use should obtain the bill from the retailer and should display at the kitchen for ensuring authentic oil use, also it should be made mandatory that the oil consumption details should be clearly displayed on the board by street food vendors, also in the restaurants and the quality control person in the restaurant should up load the same to government health department daily, in case of street food centres the same should b sent by sms or through their billing machine to the government daily. Also in multi-cuisine restaurants where both vegetarian and non vegetarian there should be two spate chefs, for preparing veg and non veg, also the utensils, the serving plates should be separate, with green dot on backside for vegetarian utensils and red dot for non veg utensils., it should be the duty and responsibility of the food court management as well as the quality control person to ensure separate cooks, cooking vessels, utensils, serving plates for veg and non veg in all restaurants whether small or big or even the road side street food stalls.  Also it should be the responsibility of the quality control person to ensure food preparations / service are not contaminated at any stage, & fresh quality food is served to the customers.

·        WAYS & MEANS OF IDENTIFYING ADULTERATION, CONTAMINATION MANDATORY SHOP KEEPERS/ RETAILERS SUBMIT DAILY TRADE DETAILS ONLINE TO GOVERNMENT; WIDE SPREAD AWARENESS CAMPS ACROSS LENGTH AND BREADTH OF INDIA

        Also there should be vigorous awareness regarding the ways and means of identifying quality products across the country, regarding types of  adulteration of various products,  at various stages, the look, the smell, the taste before cooking, after cooking etc.

        Also it should be made mandatory that all packaged food should be bar coded and every shop keeper should mandatorily possess the bar coding reader machine and billing machine and provide bill for every purchase. Ideal government ensure every shop keeper should possess a tablet PC with pre loaded accounting software in local language and train the shop keepers to do all inventory, stock, trade recoded daily in the account books so that government will get information on the trade happing on daily bases. Like bank’s close their daily account daily, it should be mandatory on the part of every retailer to up load the stock position daily at the end of the trading hours. Also the same individual product wise should go the manufacturer/ importer of the product in the supply chain so that they too can have the idea of movement of their stock; Al;so since government already announced encouraging debit card/ credit card paymentsin all retail outlets with incentives of reduction in VAT to the retailers who has over 50% of their turnover receive payments through cards, in future there should almost total cash less transactions that contain all sorts of maladies in the trade, whether it is adulteration, or duplication or zero bill trade etc all can be fixed to a great extent. Also government create a mobile app for reading bar coding by the consumers or by the way of sms-ing the bar code number the consumers can identify the authenticity of the manufacture, the date of manufacturer the date of expiry, the authorised retailer, the product is original and not duplicate by authenticating the sale of the product not done previously by the same bar code elsewhere.

        Also ideal that government supply simple/ basic quality testing machines/equipment to all villages/wards in the country and provide training to the  the Gram Panchayat office how to use them, Also government make wide spread awareness through TV, Radio, News papers and in all SHG’s and in all slums, and in all  villages through sarpanches and Gram Panchayat office bearers regarding  various types of adulteration, contamination (adding, mud, stones etc,)  and how to identifying them, identifying the packaged product originality by the SMS, mobile app etc, and use of simple tests for identifying the adulterated products, and also use of only fresh products, and healthy habits; also making it mandatory that vendors/ retailers them-self possess the simple, primary quality check instruments for all foods specially edible oils, milk etc which should be otherwise supplied by the Manufacturers, importers associations in INDIA of that product, it should be made mandatory that all retailers should perform such quality test in camera if any of the consumer/customer demand. Also government must provide subsidy for simple/primary quality check instruments for individual use so the each house hold can buy such instruments and do quality check at home (in camera ideal to record video through mobile or any video recording device) itself and in case found deviations then they should immediately report it to the concerned authorities; also government should supply such primary quality check instruments to every MRO/ VRO office and train them to do so in camera. Also the Gp , MRO, VRO should ensure periodic quality tests for the hygienic surroundings of food preparation, quality raw material, and other utilities supplied to the SC ST OBC welfare hostels, government midday meals and also for the anganwadies and old age homes in their respective territorial jurisdiction, and a monthly dossier reports should be sent online with video/photographs of the inspection reports for ensuring quality food, supplied reaches to the people.

        Also there should a toll free complaint for containing adulteration and if any one who comes across, or who is aware of/notice happening of any adulteration can inform the government and the details of such persons should be kept confidential, and also there should be 20% of prize money reward for such information about the adulterated product manufacturing.   


4) MEASURES TO CONTAIN DUPLICATE, CONTRA BRAND SALE IN THE COUNTRY, ENSURING QUALITY STANDARDS MAINTAINED EVEN IN PRODUCTS MANUFACTURED BY MSME/SHG

        Also government must make it mandatory that all the product manufacturers should maintain website including MSME & SHG (in future after completion of Rural Broad Brand connectivity);        All the product of same nature (like noodles, tea, biscuits, chocolates etc)should be categorised and made available on the website of government, and also the territory of their product availability/ sale (districts, states, countries), and also each packaged product should possess bar coding printed on it; for MSME/SHG/ Other Micro/tiny Manufacturers need to paste the Bar-coded strip like EMS Speed post bar coding sticker obtained from government, wither they can print the stickers online by submitting their details, details of the product and the third party quality certification number, also there should be audit/ accountability of all the bar coded strip downloaded/ printed by each MSME/SHG, for this they should use the nearby internet centre or government any how ensuring rural broad band, every Gram panchayat should be connected with board band, and through the GP  office computer internet connection thy can download the bar coded strips, alternatively they can have portable hand held 3G operated billing machines which they can connect it to their mobile or tablet PC and download and print the bar coded strip bills; its ideal that government provide tablet PC to all MSME/SHG with pre loaded accounts software as well as bar coding app;  so that any one buying the product anywhere should able to get product manufacturrs, date of manufacturing, expiry date, quantity of the product, their licence number etc; this ensures not only more quality controlled products due to accountability of the manufacturers as per standards , but also it increases the marketability of the MSME/SHG products across the Country. Also the products can be searched either by the manufacturer name or the product category or by the main ingredients in the product, each manufacturer details should be visible to the common public.

        In addition for the government must get information on day to day bases the manufacturers should up load/ display clearly the source point of raw material, the quantity of raw material,  the wastage of raw material in the manufacturing process the available machinery, the number of workers, salaries for each worker, the annual salaries,  the quantity of electricity consumption per shift, the cost of raw material, the inventory of raw material and stock in hand both raw material and finished products, goods in transit etc to ensures the raw material is of the quality and also the details of the nutritionists, food quality controllers should be clearly visible in the government website details submitted by the manufacturer to the government on daily bases  on automatic up date, this measure will certainly reduce to a great extent the adulterated, sub standard, duplicate /contra brands manufacturing, sale in INDIA.
PART -2

HYGIENIC FOOD PREPARATION- WOMEN IN MENSTRUAL CYCLE- RELIGION- COURSE CORRECTION

·        BANNING WOMEN IN MONTHLY MENSTRUAL DAYS FROM WORKING IN FOOD PROCESS, FOOD SERVING DURING THOSE DAYS UP HOLDING THE SANATHAN DHARMA, RELIGIOUS CUSTOMS

·        ALSO PAID LEAVE FOR WORKING WOMEN DURING MONTHLY MENSTRUAL DAYS.

·        OTHERWISE GOI ENACT LAW MAKING RELIGIOUS REFORMS, ALLOWING WOMEN TO PERFORM RELIGIOUS RITUALS AT HOMES, AND ALSO IN PUBLIC WORSHIP PLACES, IN ADDITION TO CREATION OF HYGIENIC WOMEN FRIENDLY TOILETS IN ALL WORKPLACES, ALL PUBLIC PLACES; IN ADDITION COMPLETE TAX EXEMPTION & SUBSIDY ON SANITARY NAPKINS, ALONG WITH FREE SUPPLY OF SANITARY NAPKINS BY GOVERNMENT TO ALL BPL. LOW INCOME GROUP ADULT GIRLS AND WOMEN IN INDIA

·        EITHER THING SHOULD BE WIN-WIN FOR WOMEN IN THE COUNTRY, SET EXAMPLE FOR OTHER COUNTRIES TO FOLLOW

        Since India being a country with lot of religious sentiments, beliefs, and Hindu religion being one of the oldest religion in the world, and the traditions and customs of Hindu religion (for that matter all most all religions across the world whether it is Islam or Christianity or some religions in most developed country life Japan) consider adult girls/ women in their menstrual cycle days are impure/un hygienic as such they are barred from performing religious rituals during their menstrual days or in some religions even they are barred from touching religious books, altar etc, in Hindu religion they are kept away from the main home and are barred from performing cooking; and it’s a open secret that even till date majority of the house hold in India  women during their menstrual days  do not perform religious rituals at home or visit the temples or any other religious functions, and also it is an open secret that in some caste’s/ section of people who are considered as most orthodox will not allow their women to perform cooking during their menstrual days. But the fact of the matter as per biological since is by natures default settings women will shed down their blood to prepare themselves for reproduction with full energy, also it is fact that most of the adult girls & women during their menstrual days feel weakness, tediousness, pale, irritating, due to the hormone imbalance, and metabolic changes in them during those days, compounding to it most of the women in India are Anaemic already, also it is an open secret that many adult girls/ women in their menstrual days come across health disorders like severe stomach ache, head ace, even some feel depressed, all leading to loss of concentration at work for all working women; keeping in view of both religious sentiments as well as scientific reasons government must enact law banning women who are under their monthly menstrual cycle should grant paid leave for working women, in addition barring women attend for work (only during menstrual days) in food processing industry, related fields  food preparation/serving the food in any part of the country; this paid leave during menstrual days and barring women to work in food processing industry during those menstrual days every month should be applicable to all places of employment whether it is in government  or private including domestic hep, MNREGA workers,; Also it should be up to the women whether she is willing to work during her menstrual monthly days in all other sectors except in food preparation/ packing the food/serving the food (either in restaurants or even in airlines whether women should be barred from working during those days.

        Its a fact that still the majority of the adolescent girls & women in India do not have access/afford/use the hygienic sanitary napkins. In this conditions it is very ideal to implement this measure of keeping the women away from food processing during their monthly menstrual cycle is very appropriate. We have to trust the women voluntarily, truthfully take leave/ keep themselves away from food preparation during their monthly menstrual cycle days (some women may use this leave for other personal purposes, and may attend food preparation during their menstrual dates cheating, but such percentage who cheats themselves is very low/may not be there, still in order to avoid such situation, all working women should be asked to perform religious rituals in the place of work according their religious faith  daily in their work place, so that hardly there is no scope for women cheating taking leave for personal purposes and attended work during their monthly menstrual days; this measure will certainly improve the quality of the products, in addition very positive vibrations prevail at work place as all women working in the food processing performing daily religious rituals during their presence in office brings prosperity to the employer, considering women in normal days (other than during menstrual days) as auspicious, goddess of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth; also there should be severe punishments for women cheating and availing this leave on other days or not availing and attending food processing work during their menstrual days), which can be identified by the HR department through their earlier records, subjected to health check up in the hospitals.

        Also in order to ensure privacy of the women to apply for leave during those days, it should be mandatory hence forth all office establishments, shop floor should have HR department, Supervisors who look after attendance etc should be women only, so that there will not be any issue for women to share their problems with other women in their organisation; else there should be a provision that the senior most women in the organisation can deal with all such leaves; also in order to ensure work in the organisation, factory did not hamper, the all the work that women which women perform should be trained to other men, women so that in case of women in crucial work places go on leave during those days, the other trained persons in the organisation can take up their job during their leave, in addition also it is ideal that some stand by people to be trained in basic processing / skill development in every sectors (which GOI is announced to do so along with Industry), and they should be recruited on contract bases during those days. Since in Hospitality industry near about 50% of total employees are women,  the government must provide training for un employed in that sector, similarly al other sectors, so that even some more additional employment can be generated in the form of temporary contract employment, also most of the house wife’s can get training in various technical, non technical, etc and they should be utilised for filling the temporary positions in case of acute need for staff in the absence of working women on leave during their monthly menstrual days. Also ideal that government provide leave for men for their wife’s in monthly menstrual days to take care of the family, for cooking, performing daily religious rituals at home etc. This leave should be only for the men who are in nucleolus families, with children below 18 years of age.

        Also it is a fact that by and large, majority of the working women will be happy to stay at home during their monthly menstrual days due to the fact that they are psychologically feel relived from un known stress being out side during those days.  Having been said that there should be exceptional cases where women can perform their work during their monthly menstrual cycle for such as Doctors, (not nurses because there is a chance for getting infections for them from sick patients if proper care not taken by chance), etc. Certainly not in factory shop floors, even in construction, even by MNREGA workers, Also is it is ideal that Women in their monthly menstrual cycle should abstain from preparing food at home, instead the husbands or other family members should take responsibility of preparing food during those days else some sort of arrangement they should do. This also falls under equality of women, (Equality Planner for wife & husband to share the responsibilities equally in all walks of life for ensuring gender equality starts from each home, Ref my Doc Reforms in Marriage Related Laws, Mar 2015).

        Also it is fact that many women feel very uncomfortable working in offices, commercial retail outlets, shopping complexes, shop floors, onsite construction, especially the MNREGA women workers,  during the menstrual cycle days, due to lack of Toilets, if existing not in usable position, or very pathetic un hygienic conditions, nor do not exist in the very first place or there is no women specific or general toilets, also in majority of the toilets in working places lacks proper waste disposal, also lacks clean water in the toilets, as a result most of the working women are literally suffering during those days, and are getting infections, serious multiple heath disorders, even in some cases leading to cancers, due to prolonged stay without going to wash room, indication of many surveys.

        Since it is fact that as per Hindu Religious systems Women Do not Visit the Temples or Perform Religious Rituals even at home do not allow women to cook food considering that during those days spiritually their auras will be negative and considered food as Prasad of Almighty (in most religions in the world, either they offer the food prepared to almighty, or pray before eating), then how come they can prepare food to be eaten by millions of other people during their monthly menstrual cycle. There should not be two types of morals prevail????; having been said that, if all Hindu Women, all women all regions perform the religious rituals at their home during their monthly menstrual cycles, in addition if they visit the Hindu Religious places and participate and perform Religious rituals in Hindu Worshipping places, in addition when Government able to provide free sanitary napkins for all downtrodden/ low income group adult women in their menstrual cycle in India, also full tax exemption on sanitary napkins, also subsidised sanitary napkins for other income group women, ensure all adult women in their menstrual cycle days use hygienic quality standard sanitary napkins, in addition special women friendly toilets in appropriate number (at least one women toilet for every 50 working women in every organisation, with appropriate necessary clean , hygienic water in the toilets, in addition construction of women friendly toilets with same standards in all places like railway stations, bus stations, shopping complexes (as many women work, visit), office complexes), ensuring all most all adolescent women in India uses hygienic practice of use of safety napkins, are fully healthy, and feel almost as normal as other days,  then there is no need for any kind of restriction on women during their monthly menstrual cycle to be kept away from  food preparation. In the absence of the above it should be mandatory that women should be barred from food preparation & serving activities during their monthly menstrual cycles.

        It is really strange that how come the so called women rights organisations, so called feminists, did not demanded for paid leave during their monthly menstrual cycle or bring change in the religious customs legally till date. Its really gender sensitivity following the nature, also more strange, surprise is that the so called orthodox religious people who claim that they are the custodians of religious faith of Religious  Sanathan Dharma not advised the government till date about providing the paid leave for Working Women in India to provide rest for them during their Monthly Menstrual days, in addition to banning women to work in food processing industry during their monthly menstrual days, how come those who them self do propaganda, give impression to the society they are born for ensuring sanathan dharma prevails, are eating the food prepared by women during the menstrual days till date (in the absence of above said provision of banning women during those days, many women working in food processing industry, including the mineral water industry, and in so called five star restaurants, airlines and even in some sweet stalls women are serving food during all days including their menstrual days, then how come it is acceptable for them, in case they pretend that they do not eat food outside/ packaged food, or food served by a women, then how come two rules, one for them one for others, as it is fact they do not allow their women to cook at home, perform religious rituals during those days, in such case then there is no need for  practice of so called sanathan dharmas???, in case they strictly follow the so called sanathan Dharma of keeping their women who are in menstrual cycle out of their home/ isolate them, keep them far from kitchen in their homes, then why not they advocate the same openly and make it legitimate, with paid holiday for working women during those days ??????, otherwise its really utter hypocrisy on the part of the so called religious leaders who make their women to keep away from their personal kitchens, but other people in the country can have food prepared by women during menstrual cycle???, in such case they should not talk, advocate so called sanathan dharma. Also more interestingly contrary to the very notion of the sanathan Dharma, especially Hindu religious dharma followed by so called orthodox people in this regard of  keep their women in menstrual days out of touch with objects, cooking, religious rituals, when the Same Hindu religion in ASSAM, the mother goddess  KAMAKYA AMMA temple will be closed for 3 days annually, citing that Mother Goddess will be in menstrual cycle during those here days, and Millions of people will visit the temple on re opening and consider them self lucky to have the cloth with blood stains which is used in menstrual cycle of Mother Goddess.
 
        So Media should ensure wider debate and discussions, create awareness in people of the country, especially girls and women to make it a national movement and create positive pressure on the government, as it is fact that most of the people in apex, decision making level in politics, government, Trade Unions, Ngo’s, even in films, so called rights activists and in even in Media are occupied by people belonging to so called orthodox religious families/family trees, with notion that they are considered as most pure, most knowledge people, always either in power or advises the power centres, somehow control the rest of the entire population of the country with their brain irrespective of political party in power, irrespective of any territory failed the women of the country till date, they should do self introspection whether such traditions are followed by their family members or not even now, if yes how far it is appropriate.  But the fact of the matter is most of them, even though how much educated they are, how much most up to date modern they are, elite, some of them fully indulged in culture of smoking, alcohol consumption, womanising, prostitution, adultery, gambling, even some addicted to narcotics,  with all such  illegitimate activities are not a taboo for them which are considered derogatory in the sanantan dharma, but coming to this point of  menstrual girls/ women in their family, during their monthly menstrual days  they practice/ impose un official banning women in their personal homes, making their women in  monthly menstrual days to abstain from preparing food in their home or lighting lamp in their home worshipping place, nor allow them to participate in religious functions, rituals, allow them to visit worshipping places, strictly following this un official ban of their women is right for them????????? How do they justify this double standards in one or other manner, what they should follow at home considering it is best practice also should be followed in the country?????, So all stake holders in the society, the  Religious leaders and government women’s rights organisations, private industry, must work in tandem taking on board all women’s rights organisations to decide on the matter, either paid holiday for working women during their menstrual days with complete ban on women working in food processing, serving food, even touching food during these days in the public/ commercial food processing, servicing  or lift the un official ban of women from abstaining from food preparation at homes, worshipping by women at their home & religious worshipping places; its not blasphemy, nor misogynist but  reality.   If GOI is really for gender equality, gender neutrality, gender sensitivity then they should take either of the decision. Also its really the best / top most gender sensitisation, gender equality/ proper respect for the female gender. This measure is really boon for all women in the country; its really appreciable, if GOI and the Prime minster take up the matter seriously not only at national level, but also at international level to grant paid leave for women during their monthly menstrual cycle, in the lines of making International Day of Yoga. The entire women in the world will appreciate the move, as they get benefited out of this in all means.
    
CONCLUSION

Since at present the quality testing and quality control in India do not mach any developed countries, Government need to ensure that Quality control and standards are maintained in all sectors, especially in food processing industry, in addition there should systems in place to check adulteration, contra brand sub standard products made illegally causing tremendous health disorders ad life risk for innocent people. The above mentioned suggestions like mandatory bar coding of packaged foods, four tired quality control system, tax concessions on individual simple/basic quality testing at homes, mandatory basic testing at retailer, quality controllers at each food processing unit/restaurant, also ensuring stringent norms for packaged water manufacture and sale with complete details of manufacture, source of water, machinery, territory of sale, with bar coding of each pack, and sale of each pack can be tracked, containing contra brand sale with complete details of date of manufacture, retailers etc, mobile app to read the bar code or typing the bar-code by SMS request;  also mandatory for all educational institutions, work places, (offices or shop floors), all hospitals and all railway stations, all bus stations, and all food processing industries and in all restaurants should have Reverse Osmosis plants for purification of water and must use only the RO water and not packaged drinking water, with installation of RO water dispensers at the entrance, in each floor in multi floor buildings, periodic maintenance, ensuring absolute hygienic surroundings all time at the RO water dispensers, Installation of RO water plants in every village and every slum by the government and provide RO water at very nominal rate; Also complete ban of sale of lose Edible oil, all packs of edible oil are bar coded with making details of brand wise edible oils available on web with location of retail sale, and banning use of multiple times heated oil in all commercial places, food processing industry, Also complete ban on sale of calcium carbide to individuals, complete monitoring of industries using calcium product and stringent quantity audits for its disposal, which is used for fruit ripening, also complete ban of growing vegetables, especially leafy vegetables in contaminated waters, polluted waters; mandatory source of raw material for all vegetable, non veg retailers,  also restricting the sale of oxytocin injections, which are used for enhancing milk production, to be sold only on medical prescription, with complete address proof, phone number for each sale, stringent monitoring on the company’s manufacturing such products with strict audit for raw material use, outcome of the product; also mandatory qualified quality expert in every food processing industry, third party quality certification for MSME and SHG food processing, setting limits for use of all ingredients like salt, sugar, other components in all packaged food products, also mandatory transparent packaging of most of the packaged food products, especially the edible oils etc with only 50% of the pack allowed for brand, other product information, rest of the 50% of the pack areas should be fully clear transparent visible; also introducing mechanism of virtual private network between all retailers and manufacturers with mechanism to track the sale of each packaged food online real time, by the manufacturer and the date of expiry batches should be made available to the government and the system to recall & destroy the expiry dated products and mechanism to adjust in the books of accounts of both retailer and manufacturer for out of turnover, tax preview; complete ban of sale of perishable items in plastic/ polyethylene packs in retail shops for not only reducing environmental pollution, but also preventing retail shops pack portion of substandard products in that pack, also ensures choice for the customers to chose from among the lot, also mobile app for clicking & automatic upload to the municipal authorities for use of plastic bags, severe punishments for manufacturers, distributors and retailers of the polyethylene bags, also fine for the people who are carrying/using polyethylene bags in public. Also encouraging use organic food, reduction of chemical fertilizers and chemical pesticides, through providing incentives for organic farmers, etc will certainly lead to  availability of quality standard food to the people leading to good health leading to overall increase in man-hours which leads to increase in production, GDP and Development of nation.  

Since it is fact that Gender Equality is only on the papers and buzz word, and equally the Gender sensitivity, So there is acute need for establishment of Gender Equality and Gender sensitivity in India and also in the World; it is fact that the nature designed the metabolism of Women for reproduction, and prepare them to its full potential every month through their menstrual cycles; and it is fact that as per history women are better care takers of the children and family and men being having strong body structure meant for hunting and getting the food in earlier times, but times has changed, women are competing with men in all field, in fact women out shine men in banking, finance and many other fields, but al the same time they cannot overcome the natures design of their metabolic changes; it is fact that most of the women feel loss of energy, feel tired during their menstrual days, and also it is fact that from times immemorial religious faith, sanathan Dharma of almost all religions across the world has set some norms for women in menstrual days like not to cook, not to perform religious rituals etc also may be with the intention of providing rest, which was later on destroyed and termed as impure and sin, what s ever may be the reason behind it , but it should be applied in the larger interest in the world in a more advantageous way to women by ensuring all working women to be provided paid leave during the menstrual days, also at the same time respecting the religious dharmas, and complete ban of women working in food processing industry during their monthly menstrual days will be a win win for both women as well as the religion, which is in the larger interest; in addition to caring heath of adult women government must provide tax concessions on sanitary napkins in India, in addition to providing free sanitary napkins to all downtrodden adult girls and women for ensuring hygienic health for them, all leading to over all development of the county as healthy women is healthy family, at the same time religious dharmas which are the driving force of the world providing moral strength, of course physical strength should be ensured through good food or over all development of individuals as well as nation as a whole.
