Hyderabad: Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has slapped a fine of Rs.10,000 on Karachi Bakery, Khajaguda branch, for not maintaining proper hygiene.

GHMC officials said the bakery was not segregating the wastes and not complying with Covid protocols.

On January 1, GHMC officials visited the bakery and conducted a random check. This followed a complaint from Srinivas, a resident of Hyderabad, who claimed that the sweets he had purchased from Karachi bakery in Chaitanya Enclave, Khajaguda were infested with fungus.

Srinivas visited the bakery on December 29 and purchased a packet of Mysore Pak. "When I opened the sweet packet the next day, I found fungus on two Mysore Pak pieces," says Srinivas.

On January 1, Srinivas put out a tweet tagging GHMC, Arvind Kumar and other officials of GHMC responded to the tweet and visited the bakery.

"GHMC officials also took some samples from the shop for lab testing. I appreciate the prompt action taken by the municipality," says Srinivas.
