The Chamber has requested a quick resolution to this issue, urging the appointment of officers in the said department and a streamlined approval process for licenses.

Raikumar Nahar, and the Secretary of the Poona Merchants Chamber said that they have submitted letter of demands to the Minister of Food and Drug Administration Sanjay Rathod, and they are hopeful that the situation will be resolved soon.
