Dr Akshay Singhal, Founder and CEO of Log9 Materials said, “The deferment in the implementation of the EV Battery Standards and the Government’s latest decision to roll out the regulations in phases is most welcome from the industry perspective. This move will ensure adequate diligence is done before the revived generation of batteries arrives to the Indian consumers.”
