In FSSR, there is no any MRL (max residue limit) for antibiotic residues in milk and any official report on residue surveillance. In fact probability of antibiotic usage and there residues in milk are more because of different types of treatment like mastitis. Here in india, to follow good vet practice is so difficult because of unorganized sector and poor knowledge . When we look to international standards like codex , EU and US FDA they have stringent conditions (MRLs). As per latest data published by WHO India is top most country which using antibiotic for treatment. To avoid resistance problem, MRL fixation is one of the prime importance...have to do by FSSAI

There is only one paper on surveillance of Antibiotics residues in milk by Dr.sudershan Rao (1995) National Institute of Nutrition ,Hydrabad. After than There is no any work except few cases. Without knowing our own conditions it's very tough to formulate standards. Even if Authority formulate standards based on codex ,EU and US FDA ....it will create problem for Dairy Industry

Can you send me few links or references where I can get the evidence in support of your arguments?

I am interested in finding out few areas where our Food regulations are in grey areas or are very vague/not specific.
