Electric bicycles and cars

Does India have any standards for electric bicycles and cars or are we just dependent on our companies to emulate the west and then standards will come later.

According to me given such push by govt BIS should be all over making standards for electric cycles and vehicles in India more

Please note, we do not do any research or design or manufacture in India and therefore have no standards. We simply follow or emulate standards by the original designer and give them our initials like what most of the the product importers/suppliers do in India. So what you get is what you purchased. Forget about standards!!! more  
We also need infrastructure like charging points all over the place just like petrol bunks. more  
BIS is such a stale body, I apprehend any such effort from their end. more  
The Govt. seems confused and desperate. Sometimes, they speak about ethnol, then BS-VI and
finally EVs. Very frequently, they arew changing the policy/focus which is very harmful to the automobile industry. There must be long term policy in place. Vehicles are not only major
contributors of air pollution. To insulate the Indian economy from the impact of wild increase
in the crude oil price, blending of ethnol with petrol seems to be the best option. It will give
boost to the local industry/farm produce. Discarding 15 years commerical vehciules will provide
extended help. Putting too much premium on EVs may not be a wise step as coal is used in
producing electricity which adds to pollution and eats out natural resource. The initial cost of
EVs is very high which every Indian cannot afford. The standards for every product should be
freezed before its launch to avoid any controvery later on. more
