New Delhi: Over 1,000 products manufactured by firms like Dabur, VIP industries, Eureka Forbes, Jaguar, HUL (foods), Nestle India will not be sold at CAPF canteens anymore from Monday as they are not ‘swadeshi’ or are prepared from purely imported products, a government order said.

The Ministry of Home Affairs on May 13 declared that this nationwide network of over 1,700 Central Police Canteens (CPCs) or Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF)canteens will only sell indigenous or “swadeshi” products from June 1 in a bid to give fillip to domestic industries.

The order said all those items which are made from “purely imported products” are being de-listed from Kendriya Police Kalyan Bhandar or CAPF canteens from Monday.

The firms whose certain products use imported goods and have been de-listed include Blue Star Limited, Borosil Glass Works Limited, Colgate Palmolive India Ltd, Dabur India Ltd, VIP Industries, Eureka Forbes, Jaguar, HUL (foods), Nestle India, among others.

The order said the rejection or de-listing of non-swadeshi goods is done by the canteen board “on the sole basis of information submitted by the firms”.

The CAPF canteens do an estimated business worth Rs 2,800 crore annually by selling their products to 50 lakh family members of about 10 lakh personnel of these forces tasked for a variety of internal security duties and border guarding.

  1. Every individual wants to anybody objects. Its our own interest . Govt don’t interfere it. if you are banned anything , first you will eradicate FB, WhatsApp ….

  2. I have seen a site where items can be searched and it will show the list of companies who sell the searched items with info as either company is indian or not Indian.

    But they do not have big database I guess they might be looking for someone’s help.

  3. This is too much. You need to promote “Made in India” products. I agree with that. But this has to happen on personal basis. Every individual should decide himself, what he wants/needs to buy. These multinational companies have invested billions of Dollars in India. Given jobs for thousands of people directly and indirectly in manufacturing units/supply chain network. If you want to ban their products on the basis of “Swadeshi Andolan” It is not fair. In the mean time government wants to attract companies moving out of China. Why they should come to India, if their products are banned in India. In that case we need to ban Google, Facebook, Instagram, Microsoft, Dell,HP,I- Phone products etc…also. Does it make sense?????

    • India itself is a huge market..if these companies are interested to sell their products in india..better Make In India.. it’s time to exploit your strength as consumer.. no government but consumer can bring huge investment back to India. This is the Power Of Indian Consumer !! Use this..for your nation ..for your generations..
