Maharashtra govt to make ‘adulteration of milk’ non-bailable offence

milk

AMN / MUMBAI

The Maharashtra government may bring in a law to make the adulteration of milk a non-bailable offence, with a punishment of up to three years in jail.

State food and civil supplies minister Girish Bapat informed the Legislative Assembly that if the punishment for milk adulteration was increased to three years, there will be no scope for the accused to get bail.

He was speaking in the Lower House after Ameet Satam, of the BJP and others raised the issue through a calling attention notice.

Bapat said at present, the adulteration of milk is a bailable offence having a provision of punishment for six months.

Various members in the House demanded life imprisonment for the accused in such offences.

But, the minister cited difficulties in enacting a law with the provision of life sentence.

The BJP member demanded amendments to the existing laws to check the adulteration of milk, medicines, and food in hotels.
