GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Feb 3: Following public complaints that outdated cooking gas cylinders were being sold in the City markets, the Legal Metrology officials inspected a truckload and found that at least two LPG cylinders were “expired.”
An official handout Thursday said the Inspector of Legal Metrology, Circle-2 Srinagar officials inspected the truck at Bemina.
“A vehicle carrying LPG cylinders was stopped and inspected. Two LPG cylinders were seized as they were found beyond the mandatory date of inspection,” the handout said.
“The LPG cylinders belong to Indian Oil Corporation and the notice was served to Sales Officer of the Company through the driver of the vehicle,” it added.
Pertinently, the LPG cylinders have a caution date mentioned on one of the three necks towards the upper ring, which reveals the fitness tenure of the cooking gas cylinder.
The expiry date is expressed though a unique numbering system, which has a year, and A, B, C or D alphabets where each of them stands for three months respectively.
