The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) had passed an Order No. 1-1771/FSSAI/Imports/2018 dated October 12, 2018, regarding the MRLs for glyphosate in pulses as specified by Codex Alimentarius  Commission (CAC) were considered for testing of imported pulses until FSSAI specify its limit as specified in Annexure-1 (Page 2). Now, that Order has been superseded by FSS (Contaminants, toxins and residues) Third Amendment Regulations, 2018, where it was mentioned that the tolerance limit of 0.01.mg/kg shall apply in cases of pesticides for which MRL has not been fixed (Annexure-2), the Order is no more in force.
