Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution Minister Piyush Goyal today gave a new slogan to the industry for contributing to the national economy.
“Honourable Prime Minister before even becoming the Chief Minister of Gujarat gave the concept of 3S- Speed, Skill and Scale. It’s time now to change it to 4S – Speed, Skill, Scale and Standards,” he said on the occasion of the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) completing 75 glorious years of its existence.
He said the centre was working towards ”One Nation One Standard”. And it was important to set the benchmark by working skilfully so that India was internationally aligned.
