RDSO Becomes 1st Standards Body to Join One Nation One Standard Scheme
♦ The RDSO, the sole R&D wing of the Railways Ministry, has now been recognised as a ‘Standard Developing Organisation’ by way of the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) for three years.
♦ BIS is the enforcing business enterprise for the ‘One Nation, One Standard’ scheme. RDSO and BIS will be together defining the parameters to ensure pleasant items and services for the Railways.
♦ The ‘One Nation, One Standard’ scheme was launched in 2019 to increase one general template for one given product in the country instead of having multiple companies set it, thereby building a ‘Brand India’ identity in the long run.
