Earlier the weight and measures deptt. had standard categories of weight for all packaged items. Now they have stopped it. As a result we are getting toilet soaps in 88 grams and 113 grams which used to be 100 grams and 125 grams respectively. Milk powder in 950gms instead of 1 kg.The MRP remains the same.
