Sub-Standard Mobiles Seized
Officials of Legal Metrology on Saturday raided a flat at Meera Apartments, Sirvodem and seized sub-standard mobile handsets totally estimated to be worth around `. 2,00,000.
The handsets were made in China and did not have any warranty. Besides, the dealer was selling the sets without submitting the required declaration to the authorities.
Following a raid at the shop along the road leading to old station road at Margao where some handsets were found, the officials raided the flat where the bulk of the handsets were stored.
The raiding party informed that they were following this case closely and conducted the raid just before the festive season so that people were not sold items that do not conform to the set standards.
