The Indian government wants to regulate the energy-drinks market

Decaffeinated energy drinks in India are to carry a government health warning, according to local reports. 

The drinks will also be forced to drop 'energy' from their names and be called 'caffeinated beverages', the Mail Today reported. India's food regulator, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), made the decision earlier this month after two years of deliberation, the paper said.
The draft regulation has not yet been published.

The health warning will state the drinks are 'not recommended for children, pregnant or lactating women, persons sensitive to caffeine and sportspersons'. Another label will warn consumers not to drink more than two cans a day while a third will highlight the drinks' high caffeine content, the paper said.

The FSSAI decided to tighten rules in the energy-drink sector in 2010 after noting that several energy drinks brands on sale in India were completely unregulated.
