Mobile unit for testing weighbridges launched

Special Correspondent

Thiruvananthapuram: The Legal Metrology department has acquired a new weapon in its battle against irregularities in weights and measures. Minister for Food and Civil Supplies C. Divakaran flagged off a mobile testing unit for weighbridges at a function held here on Wednesday.

Mounted on a truck, the equipment can be used to inspect and verify weighbridges across the State. The unit can detect any tampering of the weighing machinery and ensure correct calibration. Most of the malpractices at weighbridges involve manipulation of weights.

The Minister also distributed certificates to officials of the Legal Metrology Department for outstanding performance during the year 2007- 08. Secretary, Food and Civil Supplies, K.R. Jyothilal presided over the function.
