weight Measurement in Packed goods in tubes.

Hi everyone,

All Of us / Peoples are using toothpaste, shaving, cosmetics creams, medical use cream. but If You Noticed It carefully while using, you will be observed that about 1/3 part of the tube is filled with air Bubbles.

If you weigh it you will find that the weight is Correct. But here the customers/ Consumers are losing the money for air. this is one of the sophisticated theft. While filling the tubes the Company is sending pressurised air or nitrogen in midway to fill the tube. Since it is Pressurised the material comes after the Air /Nitrogen remain on top of the bubble and to be gets filled.

Here the Company is saving around 15 - 30 % of the solid material of cream, toothpaste in each tube. and this remaining material is used to make another production of tubes which is sold in GREY market without a bill. Here the source of black money generation. Since these are consumables products, there is hardly a chance of getting caught as everybody is observing but nobody is coming forward to make a complaint.

In Past I wrote to the chairman & president but since they are also knowing but are neglecting due to understanding in nature.

Here is a simple example;
Material to be filled: 1 Kg in 100 gms tube each.
total tubes production; 10 No;s
Air / Nitrogen Passed 15 %:
so total Material filled in actual in a tube of 100 gms 85 gms.
Extra material remains 150 gms.
Extra tube produce; 1.5 no's
Suppose, The Cost Of each tube: MRP: Rs. 70 /00
Extra benefit by adding air / Nitrogen rs. 100 / ( 1.5 tubes).

Since the material is Tonnes, just imagine how much money they are earning per day due to our negligence or Let it be the attitude.

Can Govt. takes steps to stop this theft & black Money Generating sources?

difficult but can be achievable !!!!! more
