In Markets of Bangalore or else where in Karnataka, for measuring the length of flowers, people still use age old 'Maaru', a full length of the arm, or 'Mola', half length of arm and do lot of cheating. None uses a metre scale and measure the same.
During Festival season, especially majore festivals like Ganesha Festival, Ayudha Pooja or Varamalakshmi Vratha, flowers in the market touches sky rocket. Most of them who sell flowers are children and they measuring 'Maaru' and 'Mola' will cause lot of cheating to the consumer.
Can weights and measures department along with various city corporations take a strict action against using the 'Maaru' and 'Mola' standards and enforce feet / metre?
How can this be done ? Anyone has idea on this?
