A release said that the officials inspected 45 establishments functioning at bus stands, bus stops, hotels, cinemas, shops selling cigarettes, shopping complex and malls from November 15 to 18 and found violations in use of weighing machines at 12 establishments. The teams also visited another 33 establishments and found three violations under the Legal Metrology (Packed Commodities) Rules, 2011.
