FSSAI Consultation Input

I went to FSSAI website today. Saw that FSSAI is doing consultation on jaggery and has asked for comments but when I opened the form on site it appears a formal and very detailed document and form.

My submission is only people with vested interest will participate in such consultations. common ppl dont have time on their hands. If you want common junta to participate, please share this info in simpler easy to understand language.

Not being a critic here but giving input to make your process more participative.

I am not sure, whether writing any thing here is going to correct people or it is also wastage of time in writing here. more  
Agree with Ramamani ji and Sudesh ji more

Sucrose, percent by weight, Min 70.0 3. Total Sugars expressed as invert sugar, Min 90.0 4. Reducing sugars, percent by weight, Max 20.0 5. Sulphate ash, percent by weight, Max 4.0 6. Ash insoluble in dilute hydrochloric acid, percent by weight, Max 0.3 7. Extraneous matter & water insoluble matter, percent by weight, Max 1.5 Sodium bicarbonate, if used for clarification purpose, shall be of Food grade quality The above permissible values when compared with actual test ( methods of tests may be mentioned , if possible) Satish Gupta more  
IF FSSAI IS SERIOUS IN GETTING FEEDBACK ON JAGGERY MANIPULATIONS AND ALSO ADULTERATION IN JAGGERY IT SHOULD SIMPLIFY THE FORMAT AND ASK FOR AAM JANATA'S FEEDBACK. THIS WOULD ALSO MAKE THE FEEDBACK MORE MARKET SAVY AND TRUTHFUL. TO TELL THE TRUTH, GENERAL PUBLIC IS MAKING THE FSSAI'S JOB MORE MARKET FRIENDLY AND RELEVANT. HENCE, RAGBIR SINGH'S 'TIME MANAGEMENT' DOES NOT APPLY HERE. IT IS IN FSSAI'S OWN INTEREST THAT THEY REMOVE THE FLOWERY JARGONS IN THE NOTIFICATION AND MAKE IT MORE PEOPLE FRIENDLY..!!.. more
