On June 08, 2021, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) issued an order for mandating the mentioning of FSSAI license/ registration number on receipts/ invoices/ cash memo/ bills etc. by food business on sale of food products.
FSSAI has mandated the declaration of the 14- digit FSSAI license or registration number on cash receipts/ memos/ bills etc. with an only exemption on GST e-way bill and such other government documents which are system generated.
The policy seeks to leverage the existing commercial transaction practice and the regulatory requirement under tax laws.
