All current operating labs in India should be modernised and mapped in order to maximise the use of the testing facilities, according to Mr. Piyush Goyal, Minister for Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution, Commerce & Industry, and Textiles. Yesterday, Mr. Goyal stressed the significance of upgrading and integrating laboratory infrastructure in his presidential address to the fourth meeting of the Governing Council of the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) at its headquarters in New Delhi.

Congratulating BIS on reaching its 75-year anniversary, Mr. Goyal stated that BIS has changed along with the nation and has been steadily boosting the economy. He emphasised that BIS is crucial to the growth of "Brand India." He was appreciative of BIS's attempt to establish Standards Clubs in schools to educate students about standards and quality.

On this occasion, Mr. Goyal inaugurated the BIS headquarters' renovated "Mankalaya" building. Additionally, he unveiled the redesigned version of the BIS website, which makes it simple to obtain information through user-friendly interfaces and is updated with all of the department's key activities. Additionally, booklets on the National Electricity Code and the National Building Code were published.
