According to Mathur, India has decided to have one billion light points with energy efficient LED bulbs in three years time.

Mathur was here to inaugurate the psychrometric lab set up by Danish group Danfoss.

He said the high number would make manufacturers of LED bulbs increase their capacity and production which in turn would bring down the final prices.
