Any idea why these colleges were selected for testing specifically? Also, how much did the campuses that passed, score on the scale as described?

NewsBytes

Answered by

NewsBytes

In the past, several cases of unhygienic food were reported from kitchens of top academic institutions. In view of this, FSSAI ordered audits of the canteens, cafeterias, hostel mess of selected institutions. The reason behind their selection was not made public. The maximum score possible was 114, and a score less than 77 was considered "non-compliant". Only IIT-Roorkee and IIM Ahmedabad passed the audit.

The issue was about non-vegetarians using separate dishes. For the same, the general secretary of Hostel 11, "This thing has been practised since a long time, that mess people are serving non-veg in different plates as they are not part of the main menu...council members nothing of such kind can be forced upon anyone."

What action plan has been designed to get rid of these problems?

NewsBytes

NewsBytes

As per our understanding, this audit by FSSAI was done to see the status of the kitchens at premier institutes and not to devise any action plan. Given that 10 institutes have failed this audit, we do expect the governing bodies to soon come up with a plan. We will update you in case there is any communication.

Being from an IIM, I know how badly the canteens are maintained. Though most of them are outsourced, hardly any measures are taken by the management.

We completely agree with you. The canteens and kitchens of even premier institutes of India are in a bad state. This audit by FSSAI is only a indication of what the students of these institutes already know.
