He also started to produce different equipments for medical fields like Electro Stencil Scanner, Carrier Communication Equipment, Flat Square Rube Colour television. And so on. Over the years, BPL growth had subject to constant challenges. The company was started at a time when the government had reserved many areas of business for the public sector. It had also virtually barred most entrepreneurs from entering other fields through reservation on licensing
From 1980’s onwards, when the industrial licensing was released, BPL began manufacturing television and telecommunication equipment, demonstrating its potential and future business area. In the early 1990’s after globalization and liberalization of the Indian economy competition entered the market. BPL retained its strong presence and the growth rate. Strategic alliance with international companies provided the technology for them and set the standard of quality.
Using its experience of the market and the consumer, BPL concentrated on importing technology, improving product quality innovations and manufacturing of electronic products that enhanced the quality of life. After 37 years, BPL has metamorphosed from and entrepreneurial venture, into India’s biggest consumer electric company.
