While reviewing sections 272 and 273 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), 1860 to address the concern of the Supreme Court in matters relating to food adulteration, the Law Commission of India, in its 264th report, titled Criminal Law (Amendment) Bill, 2017 (Provisions dealing with Food Adulteration), recommended that the provisions contained in the two Sections be suitably modified on the lines of those of the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006.
As criminal law and criminal procedure is in the Concurrent List, the 264th Report of the Law Commission has been circulated by the ministry of home affairs to the governments of all the states and the administrations of all the Union Territories (UTs) for their comments.
Data on deaths caused due to adulteration in food items is not maintained centrally by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI).
This was stated by Faggan Singh Kulaste, minister of state, health and family welfare, in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha.
