The Govt. of Kerala has imposed new restrictions to import of meat from outer States. The new set of restrictions have been imposed especially in the backdrop of complaints of presence of ‘poisonous elements’ in meat imported from neighbouring Tamil Nadu in recent days.
As per the new restrictions which come into force in a week’s time from now, vehicles carrying meat would be allowed entry into Kerala only if they possess food-safety certificates from the respective Boards in the concerned States. Vehicles not in possession of the above-said certificates would be stopped at the check-posts and the respective vehicle-owners would be informed of the same.
Besides meat, vegetables, milk and other items are also likely to be covered within the ambit of these new set of restrictions.
