Thiruvalla: A quantitative deficiency in a bottle of Jawan Rum led the Legal Metrology Department of Kerala to file a case against Thiruvalla Travancore Sugars and Chemicals Limited. Following an inspection, the Legal Metrology Net Content Unit registered a case. The report of the investigation will be submitted to the Thiruvalla court today.

During the inspection, there was found a shortage in the quantity of Jawan Rum in one-litre bottles. The Legal Metrology Department inspected due to a written complaint. A team of officials from Ernakulam inspected the facility for an hour on Wednesday. 

Meanwhile, Travancore Sugars and Chemicals rejected the legal metrology department's findings. They claimed that the allegation of shortage in quantity is baseless.
