The Delhi high court on Wednesday set aside the public
notices issued by municipal bodies to ban sale of sugarcane juice and cut
fruits in open without any licence. The court said that the legislation is
already in place to ensure safety and standards of edibles and beverages sold
by street vendors are maintained.
The court also said that since a survey of
street vendors has not yet been completed so no street vendor can be evicted.
The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) and its officers “are
fully empowered” to ensure street vendors follow “the prescription of law as
per the Acts and regulations”, said the court.
