LMD books vendors for labelling violations
SRINAGAR, SEPTEMBER 25: Field executives of Legal Metrology Department (LMD) today booked various business vendors in Sanant Nagar and Rawalpora areas of Srinagar for selling various crockery items without proper labelling.
During the inspections, a large quantity of crockery items like Herb Mincer, baby-feeder, cookie-cutters, tissue-paper holders, glassware, napkins etc were seized by the LMD team on the spot for violation of labelling norms.
“Some products were found carrying stickers with inflated MRP. An ordinary mug was found carrying a price sticker of Rs 440. Three shopping malls were booked on spot. On most of the crockery products, the manufacturers/importers have not printed all the mandatory declarations on the label,” a statement of the LMD said.
