FSSAI expiry dates for Indian Sweets

Seems fssai has come up with expiry dates for Indian sweets which is attached. However, what fssai must do is ensure that makers of these sweets are required by law to publish it at the time of manufacturing. This should be done in form or an undertaking that is given to consumer with bill with the sellers signature and stamp. Ideally all big Indian shops selling sweets should have a food safety officer that understands when foods go bad and is the one doing it. He'd be like a pharmacist with a qualification in medical world. more

Sweet prices are already above the reach of the average common Indians. If the recommendations made herein are accepted, the sweets are supposed to remain only within the reach of people like Ms. Seema, the author of this post who appears to be from the group of the affluent consumers, who aggregate not more than 10% of our total populace. One should make such suggestions which are practicable and are not expected to have an adverse affect on prices of the products. more  
Law is one part but the thing is we are not aware of that. If we all are aware then all the parameters will be taken care by sellers.So ever one need to aware others. more  
Good on FSSAI if they can implement it. Hopefully it won’t be like thousands of other laws, regulations, rules and promises that look good on paper but are never enforced or implemented. It is unrealistic to expect ordinary Indian sweet shops to spend much money on such stamps of approval.

Keep in mind thoughtful people avoid the rich Indian sweets most of the time because of their adverse impact on health more  
Good initiative by FSSAI. more
