FSSAI rule clarification on artificial ripening

If my understanding is correct, Ethylene in powder form is still forbidden under the Food Safety and Standards Regulations. Only the use of ethylene gas is permitted for artificially ripening is approved and thats done through ripening chambers

FSSAI has banned the direct use of ethylene powder and calcium carbide to ripen fruits and vegetables (attached sachet from china is banned)

Can FSSAI please confirm this or advise if understanding is wrong. By being quiet you make us all wonder if you arent sure about your own rules FSSAI. more

FSSAI may please clarify and take corrective action more  
yES fssai need to wake up and this is going on since so many years and fssai are giving a blind eye to it and need to wake up . more  
Yes, govt should take strict actions on FSSAI bureaucrats, they should be held responsible for all adulteration and cause of sickness because of that. more  
If lethel chemicals are banned, why FSSAI, FDI and other authorities are sleeping. May be they are all corrupt, to kill the public. Government should kick these corrupt officials. more  
The Food/Health Regulators must ACT QUICKLY on such health hazardous issues
and issue instructions to the all concerned officials and public notice in all leading
newspapers for the information of common man. Complaint help line number/email ID
should also be mentioned in such notices. more
