Abstract: Intensifying the drive to check food adulteration and other violations in the district, various teams of Legal Metrology, Food Safety and Food Civil Supplies & Consumer Affairs Departments, Tehsildars, officers of Municipality, Health department and Police jointly conducted market checking in Sunderbani, Nowshera and Rajouri, Thanamandi, Manjakote and Darhal and booked erring traders realizing a fine of Rs 17000 from them. The team inspected various food establishments including shops of sweets, provisional stores, fruits shops, bakery and fast food units in all the tehsils of the district. During the drive, erring shopkeepers were booked under different sections as they were found cooking and storing sweets and milk products in unhygienic conditions. The cases were compounded on spot and a fine of Rs 6300 was realized from the defaulter traders in Thanamandi.
