Minister's Message


Jenab Chowdhary Zulfkar Ali
Minister for Food, Civil supplies & Consumer Affairs
and Legal Metrology and Tribal Affairs

No Consumer = No Market = No Profit = No Busisness
“In a kingdom of market, it’s the consumer decision. CONSUMER is the KING. So let us respect the consumers”

I am very happy to launch the official website of Legal Metrology Department. The website is redesigned and refurbished with updated contents and information. This is a step further to reach out to every consumer in the state and bring absolute transparency in the functioning of my departments.

Information technology is a powerful tool to disseminate information to every nook and corner. With the launching of this website, a consumer living in any pocket or helmet of the state can access information and become an aware consumer.

The website contains latest information on legal metrology act and rules which will benefit not only the consumers but also to the business community as often the consumers and traders are unaware of the legal provisions. It will help consumers to approach our Department in case of any violations or unfair trade practice and for their redressal through legal action against the violators. It will also help the traders to take corrective measures to avoid the violations so as to avoid prosecution.

I am confident that the website will be further enriched with more and more information for the benefit of consumers besides regular updating the contents on the website. The department of legal metrology is committed to serve the people and I am confident that they will be delighted by the array of services we have to offer for them.
