Bengaluru: The High Court on Tuesday disposed of a public interest litigation (PIL) petition complaining that Indira canteens are serving food without a food safety licence after the government pointed out that all the canteens have obtained licences under Section 31 of the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006.

A Division Bench comprising acting Chief Justice H.G. Ramesh and Justice P.S. Dinesh Kumar disposed the petition filed by Keertivardhan Joshi, a student of a city-based law college.

Earlier, it was argued on behalf of the petitioner that Indira canteens, run by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) as per State government’s scheme, have not obtained licenses under the law and no certificate of licenses have been displayed on some of the canteens.

However, the counsel for the BBMP has said that the certificate of licence has been displayed in the canteens.
