I. NAME OF THE SECTOR                    : 21. OTHER GENERAL ECONOMIC SERVICES

                                                            (LEGAL METROLOGY)

 

II. INTRODUCTION OF THE SECTOR    :

 

I. LEGAL METROLOGY: The Department of Legal Metrology is engaged in regulating use of weighing and measuring instruments in production, trade and commerce to ensure that exact weight, measure and number of any commodity is provided to all customers as contracted for, or paid for by them. It also safeguards consumers' interest by ensuring mandatory declarations on packaged commodities.

 

The Department carries out regular / surprise inspections in markets, fair price shops, kerosene oil depots, gas agencies etc. to check whether measuring and weighing instruments bear valid verification stamp and deliver correct weight, measure or volume of commodities to consumers.  Inspections are also conducted on receipt of complaint from any source either in writing or telephonically.  Action for short measurement, use of defective and non-standard weights and measures is taken as per provision of relevant Act and Rules.

 

Packaged commodities are regularly inspected to see whether the mandatory declarations such as complete name and address of the manufacturer/packer/ importer, month and year of packing/import, common or generic name of the commodity, net contents and the sale price of the package (Maximum Retail Price, incl. of all taxes) are printed on such packages and declaration printed on them conform to the contents of the package.

 

The Legal Metrology department deals with implementation of following Acts and Rules.

 

  1. The Standards of Weights & Measures Act 1976
  2. The Standards of Weights & Measures (Enforcement) Act 1985
  3. The Standards of Weights & Measures (Packaged  Commodities) Rules, 1977
  4. The Standards of Weights & Measures (General) Rules, 1987
  5. The Standards of Weights & Measures (Enforcement) Rules 1988.

 

Under these Acts and Rules all the Weights & Measures used in trade, industrial production and human safety are mandatory to be verified and stamped periodically by this department. All the users of Weights & Measures have to submit their weights & measures to the concerned Inspector for verification and stamping at prescribed periods.

 

All the consumers generally purchase the goods either in weight, volume, length or in numbers and the responsibility has been vested upon this department to ensure that the consumer gets the correct quantity whether it is in weight, in volume, in length or in numbers for which they have paid the money to the dealer.

 

In brief, this Department has to check all the Packaged Commodities like soap, Biscuit, Bread, Dal, Rice, groceries and other items sold in volume like Milk, Kerosene, Petrol which are sold to the consumer in the correct weight or volume.  For this purpose, the departmental officers make regular inspections and report those who violate the laws.

 

II. CONSUMER AFFAIRS:  One of the important milestones in the consumer movement in the country has been the enactment of the Consumer Protection Act, 1986. This Act was necessitated because the well-organized sectors of manufacturers, traders and service providers, often attempt to exploit the consumers, despite the existence of provisions in different laws protecting their interest. Various factors including increase in the population resulted in enormous tendency and delay in disposal of cases in the civil courts. Moreover, consumers cannot be asked to wait for years for settlement of even small claims. Hence, the Consumer Protection Act was enacted to better protect the interests of the consumers.  The Act is one of the most progressive and comprehensive pieces of legislation, which covers all goods and services.   The real benefit of the Act can be achieved only if the consumers are made aware of their rights and the remedies available to them.

 

            The main objectives of the Annual Plan are to expand the activities and to further strengthen the department with a view to ensure consumer protection and effective enforcement of Weights and Measures/Consumer Laws.

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : The Inspectors of Weights and Measures are entrusted with the work of surprise inspection of shops and establishment to ensure strict enforcement of weights and measures rules.  The GOI has been stressing the need for effective implementation of the Weights and Measures Acts and Rules by field inspections by Inspectors.  The Ministry of CA, F and PD had asked the states and UTs to provide conveyance to field staff for speedy movement in the field.  With this aim in view the department had proposed to provide two wheelers to field staff in the Five Year Plan; and it was included in the Annual Plan 2006-2007 and 2007-08, but the component was dropped to discourage use of petrol vehicles in view of the shortage of petrol in islands and considering environmental pollution.  Now battery operated two wheelers are available on cheaper rates, the policy of the Administration is to encourage use of such vehicles and   that the Administration has sanctioned two wheelers to field staff of other departments, the component is included in this years Annual Plan.   At present the Department of Legal Metrology does not have any vehicles.  For effective and intensive inspection works, it is proposed to procure two wheelers to Inspectors during the plan period.
