At present, LED bulbs are being used by most people to reduce electricity bills. The advantage of this is that, LED bulbs provide you a clear white light in low power consumption. This does not affect the electricity bill too much. Apart from this, the central government is also promoting the use of LED lights to save electricity. But the use of LED bulbs and light is dangerous for us. Important news has come for LED bulb users.
Actually, according to a report, the disclosure was told that one fourth of the LED lights sold across the country are not correct according to safety standards. That is, these LED lights do not meet safety standards. In fact, 76 percent of the LED lights brands violate customer safety standards. According to Nielsen’s study report, 200 retail sales outlets were surveyed, in which 76 percent of LED bulb brands and 71 percent of LED down lighters breached consumer standards.
According to the report, according to the Association of Electric Lamp and Component Manufacturers, Delhi has seen the highest number of violations of BIS standards. According to Alcoma, fake products are a big threat to consumers. Also, they are sold illegally, due to which the government is losing tax. In most cities across the country, it has been found that 48 percent of LED bulb products do not have a company name.
Apart from this, the company that produces LED on the brand at 31 per cent is also not named. Which is illegal, and its manufacturing is happening illegally. Apart from this, 45 percent are such brands whose name is not made on the packing company. According to Alcoma, there is an LED business of about 10 thousand crores in the country, in which LEDs are used from homes to offices.
The share of LED bulbs in the entire market is more than 50 percent. According to the study report of Alcoma, the Indian market of LED lighting in the year 2010 was just 500 crores. At present, it has become about 10 thousand crores. Which is more than 45 percent of the 22 crore lighting. In such a situation, the government should take action against the brand that makes fake products.
