New Delhi, March 23: A parliamentary panel has accused government enforcement agencies of turning a blind eye to fake organic products that are sold in the domestic food market and have also drawn complaints from the European Union and the US.

The parliamentary committee on estimates said today it had recommended “stringent punishment” for entities involved in sales and export of fake organic products, but is “unhappy” with the response it has received from the Union agricultural ministry.
