Weights and Measures
After Independence in India, the responsibility for making and administering laws of weights and measures is shared by Union and State Legislatures. The Union Parliament lays down the standards of weights and measures. This ensures the weights and measures recognized by law are the same throughout the country. The State Legislature makes law to enforce the weights and measures authorized by Parliament. In 1955 Parliament adopted resolution to standardize weights and measures in terms of the metric system.
The Standards of Weights and Measures Bill received the Presidents assent in December; 1956.This Act defines primary units of mass, length, capacity, time, electrical current, luminosity and temperature. By law the Central Government must acquire National Prototype standard and keep in their custody the same which is authenticated against the International Prototypes maintained by International Bureau of weights and measures.
