FSSAI has noticed that there have been the instances of internet shutdowns when there is complete non-accessibility of FSSAI’s online food licensing and registration system (FLRS) by the users.

It would provide guidance to concerned authorities in such situations when offline license have to be issued whose registrations have expiry date during the shutdown or non-accessibility of licensing system in the region.
