New Standards for Base Measurement Unit Now Adopted by India

A global resolution has now been adopted by India to measure four of the seven base units, thus making changes in Indian textbooks. The four units that will be targeted are Kilogramme, Ampere, Mole, and Kelvin. This move is currently expected to have a far-reaching effect in terms of the way people measure these units. On November 16th 2018 a decision was taken at the General Conference on Weights and Measures by the Bureau of Weights and Measures. According to ShekharMande, who is the Director General of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research this resolution was passed on to 60 countries on May 20th, the Meteorology Day.

In the present time, around 100 countries have adopted the metric system of measurements. Further known as the International System of Units (SI units), which has been in practice since 1889. K Aswal, Director of the National Physical Laboratory said that the fundamental constants are invariants of time and space and have successfully replaced the artifact based units. Let us see how this new adaptation of base measurement change the way things work in the present situation and education structure.
