Soon, vendors selling street food, cut fruits, etc will not be seen in the capital and vendors giving gol-gappas will have to wear gloves while serving them.

Similarly, standards will be decided on serving food in hotels, bars and restaurants. Delhi Mayor Rajni Abbi is in favour of issuing the guidelines in this regard.

After floating the health norms, the MCD will take stock of the quality of spices and oil used in food items prepared in the restaurants. Oil once used for preparation of food item will not be re-used.
