Dealer License For Sale Of Weight & Measurement Instruments

The term “dealer” is defined under Section 2(b) of the Legal Metrology Act, 2009. It states that any person dealing directly or otherwise in the business of buying, selling, supplying or distributing of weight or measure for cash / commission / remuneration / deferred payments with a commission agent / importer / a manufacturer who sells, supplies, distributes, or otherwise delivers any weight or measure items manufactured by him to any person other than a dealer.

As per Legal Metrology Laws, every person involved in the trading of weight and measure items shall apply for a dealer license. Also, it is mandatory to obtain both licenses for a manufacturer / importer willing to act as a dealer for a commodity i.e. dealer license and manufacturer / importer license.

Every state has its own timeline of approval of license and application fee structure. Each license is valid from a maximum of one year to a maximum of five years. 

In case a dealer wants to trade or market his/her product in more than one state, it is the duty of the dealer to obtain a separate dealer license from each state.
