Rs. 1-1.5 billion and with these design registrations and compliance certificate from ABS Quality Evaluations it has opened up the doors in the world market which is approx. Rs. 5,000-8,000 n. Thus, there exists a vast opportunity for UDT in the global market & turn for the customer to have the most cost-effective UDT products with global standards.
