Dear Yatin,
As Per FSSAI,
“Best before” means the date which signifies the end of the period under any stated storage conditions during which the food shall remain fully marketable and shall retain any specific qualities for which tacit or express claims have been made and beyond that date, the food may still be perfectly safe to consume, though its quality may have diminished. However the food shall not be sold if at any stage the product becomes unsafe.
 
 “Use – by date” or “Recommended last consumption date” or “Expiry date” means the date which signifies the end of the estimated period under any stated storage conditions, after which the food probably will not have the quality and safety attributes normally expected by the consumers and the food shall not be sold;
 
Detailed information on usage/restriction /exemption of Best Before and Use By Date is available in CHAPTER-1 & 2 of  FOOD SAFETY AND STANDARDS (PACKAGING AND LABELING) REGULATIONS, 2011
 
Hope this will clarify you query ..
Regards,
Prem
