Unstamped electronic balances a threat to customers & govt

Kochi: According to the Legal Metrology department a 1-dry random check of jewellery shops statewide has unearthed widespread usage of unstamped weighing machines, which show a variation of 160 mgs for every 600 gms of gold. Shops justify usage of these instruments in jewellery shops on the pretext that it is imported. For years this has led to loss running into crores of rupees to both the customers and the government. Suppliers of these balances, Adair Dutt & Co., threatened officials who tried to take action by citing the Kolkata High Court order in their favour. Legal Metrology department has seized 76 illegal balances from various jewellery shops.
