Govt to implement 'common charger' for all phones in india!!!

The central government intends to implement the European Union's unified charging policy. The nation may adopt a regulation mandating universal chargers for all mobile phones, gadgets, and other portable electronic equipment. The central government may soon create expert panels to investigate the adoption of standard chargers for mobile phones and all portable electronic gadgets, according to a PTI report. The European Union has already enacted this policy.
To solve e-waste issues and save prices for customers, the country may introduce a standard charger adoption strategy. After an hour-long meeting presided over by Consumer Affairs Secretary Rohit Kumar Singh, the decision was made to create the expert panel.


Ajay Chaudhary, the founder of HCL and chairman of the Electronics Products Innovation Consortium (EPIC) Foundation, attended the conference. At the meeting were President of the Manufacturers Association of Information Technology (MAIT) Rajkumar Rishi, Chairman of the India Cellular and Electronics Association (ICEA) Pankaj Mohindru, President of the Consumer Electronics and Appliances Manufacturers Association (CEAMA) Eric Braganza, and the Indian Electrical and Electronics Manufacturers Association. PTI reports who took part.

Rohit Kumar Singh stated that the public charger policy is a complicated matter at the conclusion of the discussion. India is involved in the production of chargers. Before making the final decision, it is important to get everyone's input. According to him, research ought to be conducted in every sector, including business, consumers, producers, and the environment.

India produces and exports chargers to numerous nations. The majority of the panelists agreed that it is necessary to evaluate the effects of a common charger policy. Additionally, it is said that because so many Indians use inexpensive feature phones, the move to public chargers may drive up the cost of feature phones if the strategy is implemented.

Singh added that we might start by moving to two different types of chargers, including USB Type-C and a few more. According to Singh, the expert groups would be given two months to conduct their research and make their suggestions. In order to research the charging ports used in three categories of mobile devices—feature phones, laptops, tablets, and wearable electronic devices—special expert groups will be formed, he said.
