As per a speaking order issued by the Commissioner of Food Safety, Government of Assam, the prohibition notification issued earlier prohibiting manufacture, storage, distribution and sale of packaged drinking water (Bisleri Brand with Added Minerals) has been withdrawn.

This has been done after the fresh analysis report issued by the food analyst to the Government of Assam as forwarded by the designated officer, Kamrup, Guwahati, stated that the sample conforms to the prescribed standards as laid down in Food Safety and Standards (Food Products Standards & Addictives) Regulations, 2011 with respect to tests carried out.

However, the order shall not bar in any way, a food safety officer having jurisdiction to visit the premises of the food business operator manufacturing the aforesaid brand at any time in future and draw samples for testing and analysis.
