India to Curb Smart Meter Imports to Boost Domestic Industry

  • Country doesn’t want to buy from ‘northern neighbor’: Singh
  • India to unveil clean hydrogen policy in about 10 days

India plans to discourage imports of smart meters as the country pushes for domestic manufacturing of the equipment and cut shipments from China. 

Efforts to revive economic growth as well as fears of cybersecurity breaches have forced the country to take a raft of measures to curb imports. Soured relations with its northern neighbor China, for long a leading supplier of electrical equipment in the country, have bolstered such efforts.
