Among these are products by Gurugram-based EcoEarth Electric, which will launch a special range that can be configured and controlled by Bluetooth and Wifi using the mobile app, the statement said.

LEDs are emerging as the most energy-efficient source of lighting as they use one-tenth of the energy of a normal incandescent bulb, and half as much energy as a Compact Fluorescent Lamp to produce the same degree of light.

The union Power Ministry had in 2014 launched a business model enabling the sale of LED bulbs to households at Rs 10 against the market price of Rs 400.

The government is taking a number of steps to increase the use of LED. The ministry has decided that all below poverty line households at the time of electrification under the Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Vidyuthikaran Yojana would be provided LED technology.

The Indian LED market is expected to cross $3 billion in terms of revenue by 2019. (IANS)

Unlike other rhymes, the rhyme is part fiction and part history, since only the first two lines can be taken as an allusion to the past.
