A press release from BIS said, on the basis of specific information, a team of BIS authorities from Hubballi conducted a raid on M/s H2O Industries located at Vidyagiri in Bagalkot.

“The unit had packaged drinking water in 200ml Pouches, 500 ml PET bottles, 1 litre PET bottles, and 2 litre PET bottles bearing labels with spurious ISI mark under the brand name Aqua Smooth,” the release said.
