The Delhi High Court today asked the AAP government to inform it about the number of vacant post of food inspectors, which is hampering an effective check on the use of pesticides in vegetables and fruits sold in the national capital.

A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar directed the Delhi government to file a status report on the number of food inspectors after being told that vacancies were still not filled.

The court has now fixed the matter for hearing on November 1.

Earlier, the high court was informed that in a number of vegetables and edible items, pesticide residue was found to be beyond permissible limits.

However, owing to the shortage of food inspectors, such vegetables and fruits reach households, thus posing a serious threat to people’s health.
