Indira Canteens in Karnataka operating without food safety license
The recently launched Indira Canteens in Karnataka do not have the mandatory food safety licenses.
101 Indira canteens were inaugurated last week in the state to give food on subsidized prices.
As per reports, the canteens have not received a license from the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI).
Getting the license is compulsory before a food related business is started in the country.
However, the Bengaluru civic body officials claim that government projects do not need a license.
As per reports, 71 out of the total 101 canteens are operational and thirty canteens are not working.
The food is sold at low cost of 5 rupees and 10 rupees.
