Solution

Kavita need not take a license or register with FSSAI since she is not running a food business.

Explanation:

FSSAI issues three types of licenses based on the nature of the food business and turnover:

1. Registration: For Turnover of less than ₹12 Lakh

2. State License: For Turnover between ₹12 Lakh to ₹20 Crore

3. Central License: For Turnover above ₹20 Crore However these licenses are required to be taken by people who are running a food business and in the given case Kavita is not running any food business so she is not required to take the license. Hence option 'Kavita need not take a license or register with FSSAI since she is not running a food business'. is the correct option.
