BIS publishes Three Indian Standards in the area of Electronics


The Bureau of Indian Standards has published three significant Indian Standards in the area of Electronics. A press bulletin on these standards was issued by the press information bureau on 9th January, 2023.

The three standards are as follows:

  • Indian Standard for Digital Television Receivers with Built in Satellite Tuners. 

TVs manufactured as per this Indian Standard would enable reception of Free-To-Air TV and Radio channels just by connecting a dish antenna with Low-Noise Block downconverter (LNB) mounted on a suitable place, at roof top/side wall of the building.

This would facilitate transmission of knowledge about government initiatives, schemes, educational content of Doordarshan and repository of Indian culture programs to reach and benefit wide segment of population in the country at large.

At present, the viewer is required to use set top box even for the reception of free to air channels (non-encrypted) transmitted by Doordarshan. Now Doordarshan is in the process of phasing out Analog transmission. Free to air channels will continue to be broadcast using digital satellite transmission by Doordarshan.

To enable the reception of these free to air channels without use of set top box, there is a need for television receivers with inbuilt suitable satellite tuner.

  • Indian Standard for USB Type C Receptacles, Plug and Cables.

This Indian Standard is an adoption of existing International standard IEC 62680-1- 3:2022. This standard provides requirements for USB Type-C port, plug and cables for use in various electronic devices like mobile phone, laptop, notebook etc. This standard would provide common charging solutions for the smartphones and other electronic devices sold in the country. This would facilitate in reduction in number of charger per consumer as consumers will no longer need to buy different chargers every time they buy a new device.

  • Indian Standards for Video Surveillance Systems. 

The standard provides a detailed outline of all the aspects of a Video Surveillance System (VSS) such as requirements for its components like camera devices, interfaces, system requirements and tests to ascertain the image quality of the camera devices and also specifies guidelines on efficient installation of the system.

Considering the constantly evolving technology in the security industry and the abundant options of VSS to choose from it has become cumbersome for the common person, be it the installers/ specifiers/ users, to pick the right set of VSS that exactly fits his intended use. This series of Standards would assist customers, installers and users in establishing their requirements, determining the appropriate equipment required for their intended application, and also provide means of evaluating objectively the performance of the VSS. This will also help in making the surveillance system more secure, robust and cost effective.
