Among other consumer centric initiatives, Department of Legal Metrology J & k has developed the dynamic website as an interface between consumers and the field functionaries of the department. The website not only provides an effective platform for registration and completion of other procedural formalities but also a tool to assess and check the ground performances of elements involved in the process. Hope this website becomes an indispensable tool for consumers at large and as active facilitator for the service provider in the direction of business reforms implementation.
