BIS norms for batteries will not be an impediment to the growth of the EV industry: Govt official


As the Department of Consumer Affairs prepares to establish standards for electric vehicle (EV) batteries through the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), its secretary has stated that they will not be an impediment to the growth of the EV industry.


Department of Consumer Affairs Secretary Rohit Kumar Singh told Financial Express that the standards would be flexible enough to encourage innovation and value addition in the sector. Singh stated that the standards are being developed with India's average temperature conditions for the majority of the year in mind. Industry participants believe that it will slow the growth of the EV industry in the short to medium term, but will help in the long run.
