We are thankful to the government for their support in promoting ease of manufacturing and encouraging innovation in battery manufacturing segment. While it is important that battery manufacturers comply with AIS-156 standards for battery testing to manufacture safe and quality batteries, it is equally important that customers are aware of battery maintenance and follow the dos and don’ts essential for ensuring passenger safety and longevity of EV batteries”, says Mr. Kochar commenting on battery safety.
