dated August 23, 1954: PM's stress on quality goods

Prime Minister Nehru has urged Indian manufacturers, big and small, to produce first-rate goods of lasting value. Laying the foundation stone of the Indian Standards Institution in New Delhi on August 21, he said: "Whatever is produced by our big industries or cottage industries should be good, so that the people who buy them should have confidence that they are taking with them something worthwhile. Often it happens that a thing looks quite dazzling from outside, but breaks soon after it is put into use. This brings us a bad name. I do not like that anything produced in our country should be second or third rate." Mr. Nehru said that it had been noted in certain cases that the finished goods supplied did not conform to the sample shown earlier. This dishonest practice must be brought to an end without delay. "I hope the Indian Standards Institution would ensure that quality goods are produced according to specifications shown or advertised and that no fall in standards is allowed," he said.
