The Indian government has mandated the use of USB-C chargers for all mobile devices in the country. The regulation, which will come into effect in March 2025, was announced by the government-run Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) following consultation with industry stakeholders.

The move is in line with the European Union’s rollout of standards for USB charging ports in 2024. The decision is aimed at reducing the number of chargers per household and minimizing e-waste, as part of Prime Minister Modi’s LiFE initiative to encourage mindful usage.

All smartphone manufacturers and technology companies in India will have to adopt USB Type-C as the standard charging port for electronic products by the deadline, with some exceptions.
