First, instant noodles, then talcum powder, and now bottled water is under the government scanner, after having found out that 4,000 packaged water companies are operating in India without any licence, reports Shweta Kothari of CNBC-TV18, quoting sources.
The food regulator has observed that 80 percent food business operators (FBO) dealing with packaged water have no licence.
These companies need to have Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) and BIS certification to operate in India as per Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006.
