Standardisation Of Weight Or Measure By Verification And Stamping

The foremost and fundamental responsibility of this Department is to safeguard the interest of consumers. To achieve this goal, the consumer should get exact quantity of goods for which they have paid in a transaction. That is possible only if the weights and measures used by traders are standard and meet the required accuracy. Keeping this goal in view, the Legal Metrology Act prescribes periodic verification and certification of weights and measures used in transaction and protection. The department ensures metrological accuracy of weights, measures, weighing instruments and measuring instruments by original verification and by re-verification at periodical intervals, ranging from one year to five years.
