Tussle for BIS

It appears that the new Consumer Affairs Minister is trying to move BIS away from Consumer Ministry into Commerce Ministry.

BIS is an inefficient lethargic and slow to act system and commerce ministry is also similar so the fit is good.

I dont think it can make any standards for consumers so it need not be under consumer ministry. For 2-3 years we have been saying make standards for services but they cant get anything done.

So good riddance according to me. Like to hear what others say. more

We fully Agree with Sh. Harpal Singh Sir. Provided Electrical Insulation Tape Standard IS 7809, which is NOT adhered by some of the Manufacturers. Regards. sathe1963@gmail.com more
