On 5th August, 2016, in the case of Swami Achyutanand Tirth & Ors. vs Union of India & Ors. [Writ Petition (C) No.159 of 2012], while examining the menace of growing sales of adulterated and synthetic milk in different parts of the country, a three Judge Bench observed that “since in India traditionally infants/children are fed milk, adulteration of milk and its products is a concern and stringent measures need to be taken to combat it” and “it will be in order, if the Union of India considers making suitable amendments in the penal provisions at par with the provisions contained in the State amendments to the Indian Penal Code.” The Bench also observed that it is “desirable that Union of India revisits the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006 to revise the punishment for adulteration making it more deterrent in cases where the adulterant can have an adverse impact on health.”
