It can be noted that the government is all set to introduce EV battery standards (BIS standards) for EV two-wheelers that will be expanded to four-wheelers at a later stage. According to IANS Live, the BIS standards for EV batteries will look into "size, connectors, specification and minimum quality of cells, the battery's capacity".

NITI Aayog, in a recent discussion paper, also stressed upon the need for BIS standards as the first step towards a national battery swapping policy.
