Sugar fat content disclosure mandatory for bakeries

I read somewhere that the Govt fssai is making mandatory disclosure of sugar fat content for mithai makers.

Why is the same not being done for cake and bakery shops.

A nice 1 kg cake easily has 200-300 gms of sugar. Why doesnt the Government not ensuring that all cakes also disclose how much sugar and saturated and unsaturated fat it has?? more

Yes the content of sugar should be displayed. there are different type of cakes , some are done with lining that contains with sugar Butter also. Then decorations are tere,like flowers. Decorations are nothing but sugar. more  
FSSAI should bring the mandatory disclosure of sugar fat content for cake and bakery shops. more  
Sugar contents in all Mithais should be standardised to be less harmful. In rural areas percentage of Sugar contains in a Methai is much higher than in Uraban areas. more  
Yes, it is definitely required as it is of serious concern to diabetics and cardiac patients. more  
Every item sugar as one of the ingredients must contain full details. Similarly every consumables should be incorporated with full details more
