SRINAGAR: In response to public complaints, the FCS&CA department on Thursday issued strict instructions to oil marketing companies to ensure adherence to norms specifying necessary performance of weighing and leak-checking of LPG refill cylinders at the time of service delivery.

The companies have been asked to ensure that delivery vans of cooking gas agencies carry a weighing scale of capacity 50kg class III having least count of 10g as specified under the Legal Metrology Act which also requires the delivery persons to check gas leakage with leak-detectors to ensure the safety of consumers and their properties.
