RAI had submitted a representation to the Insecticide Board stating that the overburdening nature of the Insecticide Act poses certain impediments to the retail industry which can be addressed without increasing the risk exposure.

Please click here to view the representation submitted.We submitted that there needs to be a classification of insecticides on the basis of risk posed. In this regard, RAI representatives and a retail industry delegation met Dr. Gurbachan Singh in August, Chairman of the Insecticide Board to discuss about this matter.

Dr. Gurbachan Singh appreciated our concern and assured that the Board is for the people and they will definitely look into this matter. RAI delegates again approached the Board for the follow-up  where Dr. Gurbachan Singh and Dr. BS Phogat asked us to raise the concern to the Joint Secretary-Ministry of Agriculture. Further, the consent of the Central Insecticide Board will be taken to modify the rules laid down in Section  13 of the Insecticide Act which deals with the issues raised by the retailers, if required.
