Share post:


The Central had decided to set up two Field Testing Stations with general engineering Testing Laboratories at Gauhati and Agartala.

This information was given by the Secretary of the Department of Industrial Development, Mr S K Bhatnagar in his letter addressed recently to the Secretary of the North Eastern Council. Mr S K Bhatnagar also hoped that the Government of Assam and Tripura would encourage the entrepreneurs to avail of the facilities now being set up in these two places.

Earlier the Secretary of the North Eastern Council, Mr P H Trivedi in his letter to the Government of India mentioned how the entrepreneurs in the Small Scale Sector of the North Eastern Region have been experiencing considerable difficulties in obtaining the I.S.I. Certificates in respect of their products before they could be marketed. While mentioning the delay caused due to the locations of the I.S.I. (Indian Standard Institute) Office at Calcutta, Mr Trivedi strongly pleaded for setting up of a Branch Office of the I.S.I. (Indian Standard Institute) in the North Eastern Region to avoid irritants which act as disincentive to the local entrepreneurs of this region. The setting up of such facilities would promote industrial development in the North Eastern Region, Mr Trivedi added.
