The Department of Legal Metrology (erstwhile Weights & Measures Department) was established in the state of Jammu and Kashmir in the year 1961 to adopt metric system in trade and commerce as per the metric policy adopted at the national level. The nomenclature of the Department was changed to Legal Metrology in 2005. Earlier it was under the administrative control of Revenue department.

Commissioner/Secretary to the Government,

FCS&CA and Legal Metrology


As human civilization continues its march on the highroad of technology and consumerism, it becomes imperative for statutory and executive agencies to keep up with the pace. The website of Legal Metrology shall act as an interface between citizens as consumers and Consumer protecting Government on one hand; and citizens as traders/manufacturers/businessmen and Government as regulator of trade/business and is thus a very positive and welcome development. It provides an online window to the consumers of the state to assert their rights by getting in touch with the Legal Metrology Department of the state and seek redressal for their consumer related grievances, be it through the consumer helpline or other modes of communication that have been put in public domain through this website or through getting themselves aware about their consumer rights and the mechanism to safeguard these rights. At the same time the website also provides an easy and accessible mode to businessmen/traders of state to get acquainted with various laws, legal requirements and paperwork that is needed for the smooth conduct of their business. I hope the Department will build on this initiative by improving their website as and when required to the maximum benefit of the citizens of Jammu and Kashmir.

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.
