Indore (Madhya Pradesh): The district administration has released WhatApp helpline no. 9406764084 on which people can register their food adulteration complaints. Steps are also being taken to enable people to lodge these complaints on 311 App of IMC.  In another step to help consumers, it has been decided that milk dairies and shops selling milk will have to install milk quality (fat) checking machine.
