Any person/firm involved in dealing with weight and measure instruments, devices, or equipment falling under the purview of Legal Metrology must obtain a repairer license.

An application for a repairer license is submitted to the Controller of the State Legal Metrology along with application fees and essential documents. The license is valid for a minimum of one year and a maximum of five years.

Under Section 23 of the Legal Metrology Act, 2009, there is a prohibition of manufacture, repair, or sale of weight or measure items without a license. It further states that no person shall manufacture, repair, or sale, any weight or measure unless a valid license is issued by the Controller. It is important to note that no license to repair shall be required by a manufacturer for the purpose of repairing its own weight or measure.

As per Section 46 of the Legal Metrology Act 2009, any person who repairs or sells, etc. any weight or measure without being having a valid license, shall be punished with a fine which may extend to Rs. 5,000 or for a subsequent offence with imprisonment for a term up to one year or with fine or both.
