Article Abstract

Editor's note: This paper by Dr. Singh on the work of the Indian Standards Institution (ISI) in the field of quality control brings to mind the earlier days of that institution. This editor attended the opening of the new Standards building in New Delhi, the Manak Bhavan, more than a dozen years ago when he was assisting the Statistical Quality Control (SQC) Units of the Indian Statistics Institute. At that time considerable cooperation existed between those two institutions in getting the developed standards put into practice. Many obstacles existed, for at that time some companies did not produce any materials to conform to Indian Standards, and others produced only a very small percentage to standards, the rest being made and sold under strenuous competitive price pressures. One hopes that situation has changed. Meanwhile, in addition to the quality control activities of the ISI reported herein, the training and consulting program of the SQC Units goes on and is reported monthly in their QC News, the January 1972 issue of which was Vol. V, Issue 9.
