India will not allow import of power supply equipment from China without permission from govt

@OfficeOfRKSingh
Union Power Minister R K Singh has said, India will not allow import of power supply equipment from China without permission from the government.

He added that such an import may be used as a Trojan Horse element which can be potentially used to trigger a power grid shutdown in the country. Addressing the virtual State Energy Ministers Conference today, Mr. Singh asserted that Indian companies will need government permission to import all power supply equipment and components from China or any other country.

He said, all such imports will be subjected to an intense inspection in certified laboratories designated by Power Ministry to check for any kind of embedded malware, Trojans or cyber threats. 

Mr. Singh stressed on the need to promote Indian manufacturers of conductors, transformers, tower elements and parts of electric meters. He asked power discoms to review all imports from foreign countries including China for equipment which are manufactured in the country and instructed to stop such imports.
