Bangla Govt to install electronic weighing machines at all markets under KMC
The State Consumer Affairs Department has decided to install electronic weighing machines at all the markets in Kolkata under Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC). This will enable customers to verify the weights of things purchased by them.
The Mayor has already directed his concerned officials to take steps in this regard.
According to sources in the department and the KMC, this was a long-standing demand of people in the city and hence, they hope that people will be immensely benefited by this move and at the same time, unlawful practice on the part of a section of shopkeepers can be prevented.
