Vendors selling street food in the national capital will now be sensitised about health and hygiene for raising food safety standards. Health Minister J P Nadda on Sunday launched the project titled as 'Clean Street Food' to be undertaken by Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI). The FSSAI will train street food vendors under the Recognition of Prior Learning category of the Centre's skills training scheme, Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana. With nearly 20 lakh street vendors in the country, the training of 20,000 vendors on a pilot basis in the NCR of Delhi is a welcome steep. Under the Delhi Project, 20,000 food street vendors would be trained, assessed and certified by seven training partners over the next four weeks at 40 training centres. A Mobile App was also launched to empower citizens to reach out to the food enforcement machinery for any concerns or suggestions that they may have on the issue of food safety. The National Association of Street Vendors of India is engaged in mobilization of street vendors across Delhi to persuade them to undergo training.
