Maharashtra govt to give life sentence to food adulterers

The Prevention of Food Adulteration (Maharashtra Amendment) Act will be tabled in the House before the ongoing winter session of state legislature ends.

Maharashtra government will make food adulteration a non-bailable offence in the state punishable with life imprisonment.

Girish Bapat, Food and Civil Supplies Minister, informed the Legislative Council that the government would amend the existing law to provide for life imprisonment to offenders. 

The Prevention of Food Adulteration (Maharashtra Amendment) Act will be tabled in the House before the ongoing winter session of state legislature ends. 

Jagtap said, "The milk processing companies collect milk from farmers but the liquid turns "poisonous" by the time it reaches consumers. Substances like detergent powder, urea, skimmed milk powder, caustic soda, glucose, refined oil, salt and starch are mixed in milk to preserve it, thereby endangering lives of people who consume it." 

Earlier, those found guilty of food adulteration would be given imprisonment of six months.
