SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA (RAJASTHAN): Thank you, Madam, Vice-Chairman. I rise to support this Bill, the Food Safety and Standards Bill, 2006. This is long overdue and I compliment the hon. Minister that finally the Bill has come. As he himself has rightly said, in our country, we are hardly processing overall about six per cent of the food items, agricultural produce, whereas in places like Malaysia, Indonesia, 60 to 70 per cent is being produced. I understand, in the USA and European countries, it goes as high as above 90 per cent. That adds to the value, the value of the product; and that advantage goes to the down level, up to the farmers.

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA (CONTD.): So, I definitely compliment the hon. Minister. It is also consumer-oriented because, I hope, after the Bill is passed, the regulator is established, and if it is properly implemented, then, of course, it will be consumer-oriented, and the consumer should benefit. I don't find any reason why the consumer should not benefit once it is properly handled. The Bill proposes to create a regime of comprehensive law to facilitate the healthy growth of food processing sector by merging 8 existing laws that are being implemented by multiple agencies at different levels. I am sure, this will also go a long way because, as you know, the normal practice with our bureaucracy is that they will interpret every law not in favour of the citizens, but against the citizens. The result is that by all these complicated laws, we are creating more complications for the ordinary citizens than helping them. The Bill is the outcome of the various high level Government Committees and recommendations of the Parliamentary Committees. In view of the promising prospects in the food processing sector, and with a view to organize the business in value added farm products, the issue was first considered by the PM's Council on Trade and Industry. The current Bill incorporates the views of the JPC on Pesticides Residues, 2004 and recommendations of the 12th report of the Parliamentary Committee on Agriculture. A need for such a Bill has been corroborated by the Law Commission also. As we know that with globalisation, the service sector is developing by leaps and bounds all over the world, particularly, in our country, and it is for this reason that this kind of industry will be a great help not only for the farmers, but also for employment generation and making the properly produced healthy food readily available at different parts of the country. The Bill was once again referred to the Parliamentary Committee on Agriculture in August 2005, which laid its report in February 2006. It is a welcome beginning for an ambitious objective. Madam, however, once the Bill becomes an Act, it will require constant monitoring of the functioning of its provisions on following counts. I would like to be very specific. I would refer to the Food Authority, clause 5, chapter-II. It says: The proposed regulator, the Food Authority, should be autonomous and should have greater professional members, instead of the present majority of bureaucrats. At present, out of 19 member Food Authority, representatives of 7 Ministries shall be its ex-officio members, and in addition to these officers, 5 more officers representing the States from 5 zones will also be members. As such, the Food Authority will function like any other Government department, instead of an autonomous organization, based on professional expertise who can deal with private investors in this sector. This aspect has to be seen. Let us not make this Authority where we will have bureaucrats who are very busy, as it is, and they get membership here. They will not have enough time to have sittings. If you see the record of this kind of a situation in different Committees, you will find that the presence of different bureaucrats is minimal. They just don't attend because they do not have time. I do not blame them. Unless all the stake-holders are involved in this, scientists, engineers, the people who are going to produce all these products, people from the commerce and industry, I don't think this Authority will be able to do justice. Madam, it would be difficult for a 19 member body to meet regularly. You know how difficult it is. Out of 19 members, I do not know, maybe, the quorum will be one-third normally. So, it will be 6 or 7. I hope they will be able to maintain the quorum. Most of the time it has been noticed, most unfortunately, that even if the quorum is not there, just their signatures are obtained. (contd. by 4m)

-RSS/MKS/AKG/6.40/4M

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA (CONTD.): Let us be practical. If this is what is happening, we can understand what kind of decision-making will take place. No explanation is given as to how often would the Authority meet. Will it meet every month or every two months or every three months or every year? Some kind of regulatory mechanism is to be required, particularly in the initial stages, say, for the first five years or for the first ten years. Unless this is done on a continuous basis, we will not be able to establish the Authority, for a large country like India, in an appropriate manner. Like other regulators, the Authority should be headed by a professional expert or by a scientist in the relevant field. The representatives of the Ministries could be invitees without voting rights because if they have the majority, the Ministry's representatives will get away with any regulations. They will be having biased regulations, as we are having today. Then, the whole purpose of making it autonomous, the whole purpose of getting out of the Inspector Raj will be defeated. They should not have any voting rights. As the representatives of their Ministries, the officers cannot give their independent advice. The mandate of the Food Authority requires technical and professional knowledge which the bureaucrats of the Ministries are unlikely to provide unless they again seek help from the food technologists. The number of professionals, scientists in food technologies, agro researchers and representatives of the stakeholders should be increased. This was also the recommendation of the Parliamentary Committee.

It is also not clear, Madam Vice-Chairperson, whether the non-official members of the Authority would be full-time members or part-time members; what kind of responsibilities they will have, what kind of accountability will they have or whether they will just come because they have become members and they will be able to come from all over the country just for the sake of visiting Delhi or any other place where the meeting is going to take place. That point has to be very clearly mentioned.

The next point, Madam, relates to the Central Advisory Committee. In clause 11 of Chapter II, the Bill provides for a rather large Central Advisory Committee. That would be headed by the CEO of the Food Authority. The mandate of the Central Advisory Committee vis-a-vis the Food Authority is not clear. We do not know why we are having these two types of Authorities; what will be their relationship; whether the recommendations of the Central Advisory Committee would be binding on the Food Authority or whether they would not be binding or whether they will be working independently with cross purposes. Obviously, the Central Advisory Committee would be subordinate to the Food Authority. If that is so, what is the need for having this kind of the Central Advisory Committee? That has to be explained. The constitution of such Advisory Committee is still vague. While a large number of representatives of the Ministries shall be invited, who would select other stakeholders and how? What will be the procedure? Why don't we have a transparent system? Why should we not decide, in advance, transparently, who will decide these stakeholders without favour? They should be appointed year after year. They should be changed year after year. Do we have the same officers, the same members from the public in these Committees? If they are not eligible after one year or two years of their appointment, they must be changed because it has been noticed that the same individuals, either a retired bureaucrat or a continuing authority, or the same people from different parts of the country are appointed on such Committee year after year, for five years, six years or ten years without any contribution! So, we must make it mandatory under the law that members once appointed will not be appointed for a second term. At least, they must have a cooling period. (Contd. by 4N)

TMV-HMS/4N

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA (CONTD.): What would be the size of the Central Advisory Committee? At this stage, a few Ministries have been included. Will that be enough? It might look contradictory. The point is that we must have more Ministries but without voting rights. They can be only invitees. The Central Advisory Committee would be too large to meet regularly and, therefore, it is unlikely to be effective.

Similarly, with reference to clauses 13 and 14, Scientific Panels and Scientific Committee, in Chapter II, the functional linkage between the Food Authority, the Central Advisory Committee and the Scientific Committee has not been elucidated and is ambiguous. It is for the Food Authority to set up such Committees and Panels. They shall be constituted by the Food Authority. The business of food processing is technology intensive and involves consumers' rights. It is imperative for the Food Authority to seek mandatory credible scientific advice and it should not be optional. It should be mandatory because when we are talking of food, we are talking of health. Medical help will be required after you become ill or you become sick. So, it should be preventive. The health of the country will depend on good food for our children.

Madam, in the Financial Memorandum, the hon. Minister has mentioned about an initial financial support of Rs.10 crores. Out of that, Rs.7 crores are meant for recurring expenses like salaries and allowances. How many Scientific Panels can be set up and what expert advice can be obtained with Rs.3 crores? Either you increase it or you find out a smaller group of people where less salaries and allowances are to be paid. They can handle it. Otherwise, you have to increase the amount. In a nutshell, the Bill should provide for more scientific inputs to the Food Authority and the proposed set-up of the Food Authority should be bureaucratised.

Madam, the Bill provides for a top regulatory structure. When the Food Authority is so large and is likely to be supported by a complex of even larger Central Advisory Committee and several Scientific Committees, the ultimate test of efficacy would lie at the grassroots level. The Bill provides for State-level Commissioners to be appointed by the State Government. Who will pay the salaries and establishment charges of the State-level Commissioners? We pass this Bill at the Central level. But if the State Governments do not provide for it, what will happen? Some State Governments may provide for it and some others may not provide for it. Then, what is the use of this Bill? They can always have unscrupulous people and they can always have units which do not have this kind of authority. What will happen then? How do we make it equitable all over the country without involving the State-level Commissioners? What kind of effectiveness will be there? What kind of powers will the State-level Commissioners have? Similar is the case with the District-level Commissioners in clauses 36 and 37, Chapter VII. All the provisions of this Bill will be implemented by the Sub-Divisional-level officers whose professional qualifications have not been elaborated in the Bill. The professional qualifications of the Food Officer are also not specified in the Bill. Does it mean that these officers will have different qualifications in different States, in different districts? What we have noticed is that these Sub-Divisional Officers have already got a number of administrative responsibilities. One more responsibility will be given to him. He will have hardly any time to do it. This has to be separately handled. This should not be handled by the Sub-Divisional Officer who is already there. You have to have a separate system. This has to be handled by experts. This can't be handled just by any officer. (Contd. by RG/4O)

RG/6.50/40

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA (contd.): So what is the provision for this? How are you going to handle this? Furthermore, given the huge magnitude of food business, what are the district and sub-district level resources to enforce the guidelines of food security? Who would appoint the surveyors? Who would collect the samples? And, Madam, the Minister mentioned that any consumer could take it. It sounds very easy. But can we depend on everybody like this? He can have vested interests. I would like to explain a situation which is happening all over the world. You will be amazed that those who are producing coffee will say all wrong things about tea. They do not say what is good in coffee. But they propagate what is wrong in tea. Similarly, the tea producers also do the same thing. They do not propagate their own product, about the nutrients of their product. Rather they propagate what is wrong in coffee. Madam, it sounds to be very good when we say that any consumer can take it up. But where does he go? Does he take it before a police officer or, does he go before any of these officers? Do you think that an SDO will have time for all these things? Do you think that ordinary citizens can enter his room if they find that there is something wrong in the product? So, we must have a proper implementation of the law. Otherwise, the law will be only on paper and no advantage will accrue to the consumers. Again, how and by whom would the laboratories and technicians, who test the samples, be accredited? Who would pay for these resource centres? Are the State Governments going to be given any subsidy? Or, has it been agreed by the State Governments that they would provide for these expenses in their Budgets?

Then, Madam, while the Act proposes to organise the food business, it also introduces an element of licensing and registering requirement which may become a mode for harassment of small traders and petty hawkers. Some measures must be taken to discount any harassment on this account. Clause 31 (2) states that the Government must streamline the process of registration with local municipalities. Marooji also mentioned about this. The hon. Minister mentioned that these hawkers would register themselves. But I am worried of my poor Jalebiwalas and Golgappawalas, who are scattered all over the country. They are on the footpath. What will happen to them? The police are harassing them every day. Some of them do have licences; they are occupying the place which has been provided to them by the Corporation. Still they are being harassed. If they have the licences, would you ensure that they would not be harassed? As Marooji has said, are you going to restrict them in their movements? While we are talking of WTO, I am saying that I am one of those who would like to mention that natural persons should be allowed to move around anywhere in the world, wherever they have the opportunity. Similarly, these small traders should have the freedom of movement, at least, in their own country. If they have a licence, say, in the Chandni Chowk area, which is Mr. J.P. Aggarwal's area, can he not come to my area in South Delhi? I want these chatwalas to come here also? But how will he come? How do you expect him to register in every block of the municipality or in municipality of the country, wherever he wants to go? I can tell you that a number of these experts may not have your certificates, as we call it. Earlier, our Indian restaurants could be opened all over the world as the Governments of these countries were granting them visa for their work because they were Indian nationals. Now that has been stopped because they are known as Maharajs or ordinary cooks. (Continued by 4P)

TDB-KLG/4P/6.55

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA (CONTD.): They don't have big names like chef; they don't have a certificate from any college; they don't have a certificate from any school. But, they have been trained from the age of four. They have been cooking food from the age of four. They have been learning it, and their expertise is much more than any of these chefs. What will happen to all these people? These people have only the expertise. I can tell you, Madam, a number of times, people from Lucknow in UP come to Delhi. For different types of melas, they come here from all over the country. For different melas, they come from Rajasthan, Bengal and other parts of the country. The dosawalas from South India also come to these melas. ...(Interruptions)... Rebelloji is a great lover of idli-dosa, so do I. ...(Interruptions)... How do we eat? Do you want that? Because of licensing, the cost of these products go so high, an ordinary citizen cannot afford? You have eliminated them. I suggest that there should be no licences, at all, for them. India is not ready. Our country is still not ready, where 40 per cent of our people are not educated; where 35 per cent people do not have sanitation. Are we ready for this kind of a situation? We have to...

THE VICE-CHAIRMAN (SHRIMATI PREMA CARIAPPA): We have another nine speakers, and we have to finish this Bill today. Please conclude.

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA: You can finish it, but, as I said, we have four hours for this Bill. We will finish it by 10 o'clock. ...(Interruptions)... The hon. Minister will also stay here till 10 o'clock. The Deputy Chairman has already gone. All the big leaders won't be available. But, small people like us will be in the House, and we will wait till 10 o'clock. We are told that this is an important Bill, and it should be finished today. I am willing to finish it today. I will sit here as long as you are sitting Madam. Let us not hurry up. As the Minister has mentioned, this Bill has come after 40 years. So, if it has come after 40 years, let us take it seriously. If we have to pass it without a discussion, I am willing to pass it. But, if we have to discuss it, let us discuss it properly.

THE VICE-CHAIRMAN (SHRIMATI PREMA CARIAPPA): Mr. Santosh Bagrodia, you continue your speech.

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA: Madam, I was talking about harassment of small hawkers.

ߴ֟ ִ þָ֕ : ֕ ֕ ֻ֋, ײֻ ׸

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA: I thought Sushmaji has already left. But, I am happy that she has come back. ...(Interruptions)...

ߴ֟ ִ þָ֕ : How can I leave the House? ֲ ։ , ֲ ։? ..(־֮֬)

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA: Madam, I would again like to talk about these small hawkers. No licence should be required for them. I request you to make a provision in the Bill that they should have more places for hawking their goods. Whenever some town-planning is done, some kind of a place should be reserved for them, so that no authority can disturb them. That is what is more important than to ask them to get a licence. Do they have their education? Can they fill up even a small form to get these licences? This aspect has to be seen very seriously. Moreover, the penalty is too stringent. I am not talking about the big people like the Coca Cola Company or other MNCs. There is a provision in Clause 63 which stipulates a penalty of Rs.1 lakh for doing unlicensed food business, like street hawkers. That poor fellow cannot earn Rs.1 lakh in the whole year. Probably, in ten years, he will not be able to earn Rs. 1 lakh, and you want him to be penalised for Rs. 1 lakh! It sounds very small for McDonald; it sounds very small, maybe for some bhujiawalas, the Bikanerwalas, but not for the small hawker on the road. You should say that there will be no penalty on them at all. There should be no provision of any penalty on them. Why do you want to make them to pay penalty? You are doing it just because they don't have any licence.

(Contd. by kgg/4q)

kgg/7.00/4q

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA (contd.): Madam, measures should be taken to sensitise and popularise the provisions of this Bill. Firstly, sensitise. Those measures have to be taken first. Firstly, popularise these before starting, instead of imposing penalty which may degenerate into corruption. You know how it happens. The Government will not get penalties, but the ordinary trader, ordinary hawker would be suffering the most as and when this kind of a situation arises. The moment this is passed, I know, MNCs will come in a big way because India is a huge market. I have nothing against them. They will bring hygiene, they will bring better standards. But, I would like to request the hon. Minister to consider the aspect that when these MNCs come to India--like Coca Cola Company when the testing did not prove right, they said that our own ground water is not good--it is their responsibility to make their products world standard. They cannot have a different standard for India and another standard for Europe or the U.S. or other Latin American countries. Please make it mandatory on all MNCs that their standards should be international standards. What do I mean by this? They should be forced to export some percentage of their products to the developed countries.

If they can export to developed countries some percentage of every product of theirs, it would be extremely fine. It is not that the Coca Cola will produce one soft drink for the Indian market and export potato chips. That is not going to solve the problem. They should be forced to export the same product, may it be just five per cent, to show that their quality standards are equally good here too. Otherwise, they will have two different standards. Then the whole purpose of opening the market for them will be only for their benefit and not for the consumers. You know very well, the European countries do not allow our farm products because of phytosanitary standards, nutritive standards and presence of pesticides. They do not allow. Then, will the products made out of these farm products be exported? These MNCs will come, use these things for Indian markets; that is not enough. You must open the world market, then only the purpose of this Bill will be fully served. Then only the industries made by Indians, established by Indians, and also by these MNCs will be useful. Otherwise, it will only open a big market, a large market of our country to these MNCs without helping the Indian manufacturers for their exports. Those countries still bar products from India. Unless that situation is improved, the whole purpose will be defeated.

You have mentioned, Sir, about abolishing the Inspector-raj. I would request you to explain more in your reply on how this Inspector-raj would be abolished. Because, it does not look like that. It may be to some extent but not really the Inspector-raj will be abolished unless the mindset of the system is changed. So, what efforts are you going to make to change the mindset? I hope, there will be no overlapping of the laws. It has been noticed a number of times that under the Food Safety laws you are right, but under some other law, you are in trouble.

(Contd. by kls/4r)

KLS/4R-7.05

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA (CONTD): The whole purpose is that you are trying to develop without any problem. That will be possible if overlapping is not there and you ensure that whatever action is taken it is possible only to be taken under this law and no action can be taken under any other laws. I am talking about food safety and not about criminal laws. He has mentioned, about 26 per cent GDP is for this, I fully agree. Madam, forget about the food processing, it may not be his responsibility. It is with the Agriculture Minister. But I want to draw his attention because he is the user. His Ministry will be using those products. For example, foodgrains are being stored in our country for six years and more. They become unusable and they are not good for human consumption. What precautions are you taking? He has to coordinate to ensure that whatever raw material is used for this is at least good for human consumption. Those kinds of products are not there. At one time we have shortage of food and at some places it is lying for six years and more. Sir, you will put the ISI standards. There are different ISI standards for wheat packets and for food. There is no standard that if this food is packed in this packing material, tell what is the life. You have to mention, I am sure, the date of manufacturing and date of expiry. For example, if milk is put -- I do not know what you call those plastic bags -- ...(Interruptions)... Tetra bag is separate it is ordinary packet. -- what is the life of the milk? What is the life of the milk if you pack in these bags and what is the life of the milk if you put it in tetra bag? That has to be separately mentioned. There are different packing materials and whether they are suitable for packing have to be put separately under the ISI law. With my own experience I can say that because I have visited a number of ISI authorities. They say, "Look, this particular packing bag is good for packing this particular material but we do not know for how long, what is the expiry period and how long it will last good in that particular material." With this system you will be opening the floodgates. If you want to process instead of 6 per cent 20 per cent in five years, I will rather say let it be 40 per cent, I will be happier with 40 per cent. But with so many products being packed with hardly any proper law under the ISI, we will be actually not helping the consumer. So, I request you to kindly look into this that these packing materials and the packed goods, on them the life is properly established by the scientists in ISI and there the new standards are established as fast as possible. I know you are getting impatient so I am coming to the last point. You know, Madam, you are very enlightened, that a few years ago in a place like USA where people say laws are very stringent, at least food laws, there also the McDonald was penalised for using beef for ordinary vegetarian things like french-fries which we call potato fingers or something like that. Why did it happen? It happened because there also, I guess, law is not properly explained. But finally they had to pay one million dollar penalty to some Hindu organisations or Jain organisations or some other vegetarians' organisations. What I am trying to impress upon the hon. Minister, through you, Madam, is that now you already have McDonald and you are going to get many international McDonalds or other types of units. What provision do we have if they use beef in our country?

(Contd by 4S)

-KLS-SSS-MCM-NBR/4S & 4T/7.10 & 7.15

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA (CONTD.): What provision we have if they use beef in our country? What will happen to the sentiments of the crores of citizens of our country? What precautions you have taken in this Bill; and what kind of implementation are you going to do that McDonald do not use beef in our country? What kind of standards are you going to maintain under this law? Do you have any provision for this? If you don't, how are you going to protect the consumers? Let me tell you, people like me who are strict vegetarians just don't use those French fries from McDonald anymore even in our country because I am not sure. I don't want to take any chances. With these words, Madam, I know that you are very displeased, unhappy but this subject is to my heart because, as I mentioned, this Bill has come, this is due for a long time. It has come after a very long time, and this Bill is a very important Bill because the health of the country, health of our children and the kind of food they will eat will bring the nature of children, nature of community. So, it is very important. I compliment the hon. Minister for having brought this Bill, but please take all these precautions, which I mentioned, and once more I support the Bill. Thank you. (Ends)
