Mumbai: With the onset of Ramzan, the Islamic month of fasting, on Sunday the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has issued strict guidelines for temporary eateries that come up at prominent locations in the city. From Mohammed Ali Road to Mazgaon circle, Sewri, Andheri, Bandra, Kurla to Jogeshwari, the BMC has asked eateries to take care of hygiene as well as take adequate measures to serve fresh food lest patrons be afflicted by air-borne diseases.  

According to Rohini Kamble, a BMC health committee member, the municipal corporation has issued a notice for the entire city streamlining the steps and measures that have to be adhered by roadside and temporary eateries that come up during the month of Ramzan. The measures include fumigating the area around the cooking area, keeping raw and cooked food covered, disposing of waste generated in proper bins provided for the same and serving food in hygienic containers, preferably in disposable plates and glasses.
