Bureau of Indian standards (BIS)
The Erstwhile Indian Standards Institution (now Bureau of Indian Standards) was established in the year 1947 with the objective of harmonious development of standardization activity in India. The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) was established under the BIS Act, 1986 for the harmonious development of the activities of standardization, marking and quality certification of goods and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto. A new Bureau of Indian Standards Act, 2016 which was notified on 22nd March 2016, has been brought into force with effect from 12 October 2017 that reinforces the activities of BIS in respect to standardization and certification of goods, articles, processes, systems and services.
In the engineering courses, students do refer to various Indian standards pertaining to their subjects. Therefore as desired by the Government of India, BIS was conducting Educational Utilization programs periodically. Around 20,454 Indian Standards are published by the 15 technical departments of BIS. During our Educational Utilization program, some of the important standards are brought to the notice of the students of various branches for their own benefit in their future job in respective industries and also incase if they are interested in establishing their own industries
