In a big relief to the country’s biggest dairy brand ‘Amul’ (Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation), which had filed a suit against one of the exporters namely Capital Ventures Pvt. Ltd seeking restrain orders for illegal and unauthorised export of Amul’s milk and milk products, the Delhi High Court has directed the Custom Authorities to mandatorily seek the requisite certificates/approvals issued by Export Inspection Council prior to such consignments being permitted from all the exporters of milk and milk products.

The company, through its advocate Abhishek Singh, had filed a suit against exporter Capital Ventures Pvt. Ltd before the Delhi High Court seeking to restrain the illegal and parallel export of ‘Amul’ products carried out by the said entity. It had been contended in the suit that Amul in order to ensure quality check and compliance with all necessary laws, rules and regulations, carries out all the exports of its products by itself in strict compliance of all statutory prerequisites and does not allow the export of its milk and milk products to be carried out by any exporter.
Capital Ventures conceded that it did not have the statutory approvals and gave an undertaking to the effect that it shall not export ‘Amul’ milk and milk products without obtaining the necessary approvals and certificates. The Delhi High Court has passed specific directions to the Custom Authorities to mandatorily seek from exporters of milk and milk products all requisite certificates/approvals before allowing the consignment for export as per Export of Milk Products (Quality Control, Inspection & Monitoring) Rules, 2000.

This order comes as a major relief for the company as there had been a huge illegal and parallel export of the products, which products were meant for sale within the territory of India only and without any authorisation, approvals or certificates, same were exported abroad.
The company states that it is in receipt of names of many such export houses which have been illegally exporting its products. The organisation, in order to completely uproot such illegal and parallel exports, is determined to take necessary action against such exporters under the Customs Act which would include launching of prosecution against such exporters under such provisions which would invite imprisonment up to 3 years.
