Standards for Screens of Mobile devices

I was away from these circles for a few months and recently came to know about this new standards circle. Kudos to BIS for starting this.

I also see a post on standards for women safety.

The issue I want to raise is that of impact of mobile device screens on our eyes. Women these days in India spend 3-4 hours looking at mobile device screens and even kids do that.

Are there any standards for screens of mobile devices in India? Kindly share the same and how does BIS ensure that all the chinese and other country phones are following them. more

It is not the women folk only who are spending lot of their time on mobile phones. If there was any problems with mobile screens, that would be for every one using mobile phones! more  
Well what about computer screen watching ? I watch about 2 hours a day . There are Ticket booking staff in Railways who are there 8 - 2 & 2-8 . 6 hours . Now at least they have some respite to walk around after the facility of e- ticketing . About 10 -15 years back they used to be at the computer almost continuously. more  
This is the sorry state of affairs here more  
one should not look at mobile screen especially at night when there r no lights in the room or in the car or even out side as on long run it does damage the eyes more  
The users in their own interest must reduce the brightness when at home and iewing the mobile screen. Use it for phone only when outside. more
