Electronic video games came under the BIS Compulsory Registration Scheme in July 2013, when they were included in Schedule II of Scheme II. Given that video games are popular with people of all ages, but notably with kids, the Government of India and BIS have made it mandatory for video games to be registered in accordance with IS 616:2010* requirements.
Every electronic video game manufacturer is required to obtain BIS CRS registration before selling in the Indian market.
The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in India is responsible for awarding BIS Registration. 2012 saw the launch of the Compulsory Registration Scheme (CRS) by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY).
