Srinagar, July 28: Well, if you thought the label on your edible oil tin showing weight was accurate, you should check next time before making payment.
The Legal Metrology Department has advised all consumers to check the weight of edible oil packed in tins before making any payment.
The gross weight of edible oil tins (with 15 kg net weight) should be between 15.850 Kg to 15.900 Kg as the weight of empty tin generally varies from 850 gram to 900 gram, it said.
