Various shops are cheating Diwali shoppers through their bumper offers and huge discounts. Yesterday, being Dhanteras, many offers on jewelry like 'buy for Rs. 1000 and get Rs.500 free and silver free for gold' have come up. But the quantity and quality is not being maintained. The sweets sold for the last 2 days are also stale and are packed some days ago. Shops selling the firecrackers in Kg are also not following weighing standards. The Department of Legal metro-logy enforcing the laws of Weights and Measures for protecting the interests of consumers is warning citizens to be aware of these offers.
