LMD recovers Rs 25000 fine from a tiles manufacturing company

Baramulla, Feb. 25:Legal Metrology Department Baramulla imposed a fine of Rs. 25000 from a tiles manufacturing company for violation of the Legal Metrology (Packaged Commodities) Rules, 2011 in the manufacture, packing and sale of tile packages.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Earlier, a case was registered against the said company after a routine Department inspection revealed that the tile packages offered for sale in the market were not carrying mandatory declarations of maximum retail price and date of manufacture/ packing thereby leaving consumers vulnerable to deception.

Subsequently, the matter was taken up with the company in question by Assistant Controller Baramulla which in turn admitted to the lapse and requested for compounding of the offence. Ultimately, a fine of Rs. 25000 was recovered from the company.

Traders dealing in packaged goods covered under the Legal Metrology (Packaged Commodities) Rules, 2011 are advised to make sure that the packaged goods bear statutory declarations such as: name and address of the manufacturer and packer/ importer, name of the commodity packed, maximum retail price, month and year of manufacture/ packing/ import, net quantity, consumer care details and country of origin, manufacture or assembly (in case of imported packages).
