Potable water standards coming

Looks like the BIS and FSSAI have finally heard our request Nikita. Now the next thing these should be mandatory standards and not voluntary ones.

The Indian "beaurocratic academecia" is expert in "formulating" rules and standards and laws and what not, but such rules and standards and laws are worthless, if there is no "strict check" on their implementation. To awaken both producer and consumer, but most of all the quality controller, is the need of the hour ! more  
Sir, As a general remark, your say is true except that even a quality controller can do only random sample check. It is the consumer who should know how to monitor the quality of his consumable product. This is specially true in case of home RO water dispensers. All that you need to know is how to read the ph value. In fact, 6 monthly check is done by the service provider of course at the cost of site visit charges. You just have to stand beside him for observing the acceptable reading., which again, will be revealed by him. If in doubt, verify the same from specification, which may be available in libraries. Still not satisfied, get the water tested by Public Health Laboratory. getting it tested may require travelling to District Hq. , where the laboratories are normally available. more  
It will be a good move, if quality norms are implemented for commercial use of water. more  
Instead of being `euphoric' about the news item, it is prudent to consider the remark of Sri Shrikant Sathe. At the same time, the concerned authorities should also consider suitably tweaking the quality of potable bottled water or water from R.O. & mineral plants to give a tastier water without compromising the health standards. more  
Indian Standard IS: 14543 is existing for water ....mineral water. Potable water shall be of same standard. No compromise. more  
Very good and healthy move by GOI. Thanks. more
