    The newly formed Congress government has appointed 17 food safety officers, setting an example for other States in enforcing food safety regulations. Plans are also in place to establish 10 new mobile food labs. The State Food Lab in Nacharam, which was previously disabled, is being strengthened to conduct around 200 food safety tests daily through mobile labs across the state.
