Besides this, the description of label has also been fixed, e.g. it is mandatory to use the label along with its stipulated information on medicines and processed food.A good label should provide the following information:
(i) Name and address of the producer/dealer.

(iv) Raw materials used in production.
(v) Directions for the proper use of the product and cautions against misuse,
(vi) Date of packing and date of expiry.
