The IDI has also proposed that Indian consumers can purchase new dental products from the IISc at a discounted price, according the statement.
The government is also expected to announce in the coming months that the new Hindi dental instruments that are being produced in the next few months will have a design based on the Gandhiji-era mandala that was carved out of the mud at the site of a temple.
According to the Indian Mint report, the mandala, which is also known as the Hindu Mantra, was carved from mud in the late 19th century in a sacred temple in Kerala, India.
