The Madras High Court has vacated stay orders against two petitions. One was filed by the Panruti Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Panruti, Tamil Nadu, and another by a private firm. Both of these challenged the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) regulations, particularly Regulation 31(7).] These have now gone for appeal to the Divisional Bench.

R Kaleeswaran, honorary secretary, Karaikudi Bakery Owners' Association, told FnB News via telephone, "There has been an interim stay on all cases. Tamil Nadu's food safety commissioner had specified counter grounds to include the FSSAI as one of the respondents."

"All the cases before the Madurai Divisional Bench have been transferred to the Madras High Court. There has been no counter-objection on the cases on which interim stays have been obtained in Madurai yet," he said.

"But there are 11 interim stay orders in the Chennai High Court, and four in the Madurai High Court. These challenge Sections 3; 3(1); 3(1)(a); 3(1)(z)(a); 33; 35; 37; 50-65 (which pertain to penalties) and 77 of the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006," Kaleeswaran informed, adding that FSSAI has violated Section 14 of the Indian Constitution.
