RS Enterprises 19/7D, Khatena Road, Lohamandi, Agra 282002, Uttar Pradesh, India

Certification was obtained by misrepresentation, concealing important information about legality and the lack of official permissions to operate as well as earlier attempt at being certified.  There is strong suspicion that the operation was a front or shell for the already banned company Dynamic Overseas which is apparently operated by the owner’s spouse.  GOTS therefore institutes a certification ban on RS Enterprises for a period of 2 years.  This ban will also valid for any operation owned and/or operated by Atul Jain and / or Anju Jain.
