Measuring tapes of most clothes dealers operating in Pokhara as well as Kaski district was tested and membership of cloth dealers was also renewed in the occasion. The program was organised by Clothes Dealers Association Kaski in a joint coordination of Office of Standards and Measures Pokhara and Federation of Commerce and Industry Pokhara.
