The Indian government is allowing businesses to use pre-printed packaging materials until 30 September amid the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.

Under usual law, re-labelling is not permitted in the country.

Sectors that are expected to benefit from this ruling include pharmaceutical, food, and fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG).

According to news outlet Economic Times, The Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food, & Public Distribution said: “Due to the prevalent condition of Covid-19 leading a lockdown of the whole country, the manufacturing activities have come to a grinding halt.
The inventory of packaging material/wrapper with a pre-printed date of manufacturing is not to be exhausted within the time limit prescribed under the rules.”
