A local court here sentenced an employee of the Kaira District Co-operative Milk Producers' Union to one year's simple imprisonment and levied a fine of Rs 5,000 on Amul Dairy for selling products with wrong information.

Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate R S Rajput sentenced Ashok Patel, an employee of the Kaira District Co-operative Milk Producers' Union (which is a part of the Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF) which markets its products under the brand name Amul Dairy), to one year's simple imprisonment and levied a fine of Rs 5,000 on Amul Dairy for selling products with wrong information.

When a Food and Drugs department had raided Amul Dairy in January 25, 2005, it was discovered that it had printed the packaging date, a day later than it was actually packed.

Pouches of seized milk were sent to a Vadodara laboratory for testing and a complaint was registered against Amul Dairy and Ashok Patel, the employee who was in-charge of

packaging milk packets, under relevant sections of the Prevention of Food Adulteration Act, 1954.

The prosecution produced 27 documentary evidences, based on which Magistrate Rajput sentenced Patel to one year simple imprisonment and levied a fine of Rs 5,000 on Amul

Dairy.
