Scale to measure weight of bread from today
It has been made compulsory to provide a scale at every sales outlet from today, to weigh all goods including bread if required by the customers.
The gazette notification released under the signature of the Chairman of the Consumer Authority state that all shop owners should display the scale in a prominent place within their sales outlet.
If a customer requires, he or she should be facilitated to weigh the particular good before or after purchase.
The Consumer Authority also states that a scale guaranteed with accuracy should be used for this purpose.
Elaborating regarding the matter further, Director General of the Consumer Authority J.M.A. Douglas had this to say.
