Sudhagar and Ganesan (Optim Eng, 2012, doi: 10.1007/s11081-012-9202-6) proposed an approach to find the fuzzy optimal solution of such fuzzy transportation problems in which all the parameters are represented by fuzzy numbers. In this note, it is pointed out that the authors have used some mathematical incorrect assumptions in their proposed method.

I, Dr. Amit Kumar, would like to acknowledge the adolescent blessings of Mehar (lovely daughter of my cousin sister Dr. Parmpreet Kaur). I believe that Mata Vaishno Devi has appeared on the earth in the form of Mehar and without Mehar’s blessings it was not possible to think the ideas presented in this manuscript.
