The Legal Metrology Department has slapped a fine of Rs. 7.5 lakh on the Indian Oil Corporation’s LPG cylinder bottling plant at Udayamperoor for underweight gas cylinders.
The malpractice came to light during a surprise inspection by Legal Metrology officials at the plant here on Monday. According to R. Ram Mohan, Deputy Controller, Legal Metrology Department, 84% of the samples examined were found underweighing and the average loss of weight per cylinder was 180 gram.
A case has been registered against the bottling plant under Section 36 (2) of the Legal Metrology Act, 2009. While the weight of the cylinder is 15.8 kg, the LPG should weigh 14.2 kg, taking the total weight to 30 kg.
