Few food inspectors
Bangalore Municipal Corporation has only six food inspectors in the health department to check around one lakh city eateries. Food inspectors are supposed to conduct regular checks to inspect how food is being cooked and ensure cleanliness both inside and outside the eatery. However, the BBMP is facing an acute shortage of food inspectors. The fear of contamination has gripped the city. Meanwhile, the BBMP has been making efforts to modernise all markets and keep them clean and hygienic.
