According to a report in the Indian Express, Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Atta Noodles have not sought mandatory product approvals from the Food Safety and Regulatory Authority of India, even though the packets of the noodles display an “FSSAI licence number”.

Patanjali Atta Noodles has not got product approvals from us. The matter has been brought to our notice. We are pursuing it. [...] How can licence be given for a product that has not been approved? Licences are issued by the state government to manufacture certain items. But approvals for (non-standardised) products are given by us. That approval was not taken. I do not know how the licence was procured.
