Surveillance over street food or restaurant kitchen is impossible. As suggested by Mr. Tapas Chatterjee govt. may open a number of testing laboratory with collection centre in different locations also subsidised to have some basic analysis like for bacteria like coliform/e-coli, Salmonella, Vibrio Cholerae, Parasites like hookworm/tape worm, heavy metals like arsenic/Mercury etc. more  
Please open a food test laboratory and test food samples from public on chargeable basis and share results....things will improve automatically.....standards for testing should come up soon...charges could be high initially and NGOs might use it....but it has to start

There is no check Consequently no fear. Even after Bhangar carcass fiasco, no improvement in fish or chicken, cooked food even worse more  
All thieves and are after quick money. We all must have eaten all kinds of meat here including dogs and cats and and and with no action at all. Cheating and  robbing and eyeing other people's property and freeloading is a way of life in West Bengal. Regards,B Chatterjee

The street food in West Bengal is very unhygenic , prepared with mostly sub-standard ingredients including absolutely dangerous non food grade colours and also in very unhealthy surroundings. Needs regulatory control and supervision. more
