BIS IS NOT SUPPOSED TO REACH MANUFACTURER.
MANUFACTURER SHOULD REACH BIS TO GET LOGO.
MAY BE THAT STANDARDS FOR SOME PRODUCTS ARE NOT MADE BY BIS OR ARE NOT COVERED UNDER SCOPE,
IN THAT CASE, BIS SHOULD WORK TO MAKE STANDARDS KEEPING IN MIND THE MANUFACTURING FACILITIES OF FIRM AND HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS. more
Further, the problem with us is that we have inculcated the habit of accusing the government and its agencies for all odds and inconvenience without realising that being the responsible citizens of the country and consumers of the produces, we do have some responsibilities at least to protect our own interests and health. For example, the laws stipulate that 'no ready made eatables should be handled by the shopkeepers with naked hands' but in 99.99% cases in India hand gloves are not put on to the hands of the sales men/women and the items including sweets are picked up from the trays with naked hands only and in many cases even with naked left hands in front of the customers themselves with no objections. Keeping of prepared food items and sweets in open space is strictly prohibited which is never followed and such items infested with flies & other insects are gladly purchased by us and relished without raising any objection and complaining to the respective authorities. Whom should be blamed for this? Is it the government or its agencies or we ourselves? If we are unable to safeguard our own interests and health, do we have really any right to blame the government or any other one? We must give a serious thought on it. more
The lame excuse given by relative depts.generally is shortage of staff.
This is very good area where govt can provide employment to thousands or as a third party inspection
They have to submit non compliance reports only not the all is okay report.
Then only some control can be brought on malpractices.
Just for example for movie there is a film sensor board which issues certificate for public screening of the films that is for perhaps TEN years.
There were instances in some cities that the exibitors cut the film from inbetween join the bluefilm n screen it. No one will know unless from public some one will inform or complain.
That's our system.
Unless the system that we build is perfect such malpractices are likely to happen n also the moral of our such citizens feels their responsibility. more
