A new washing-machine could be worth hundreds of thousands of rupees, depending on how the machine is built.
The Bharatiya Janata Party government in Uttar Pradesh, where the Shiv Sena is the ruling party, has said it will introduce a new brand of washing machine after two models with similar features, such as the automatic washing of hands, were launched in the country.
The Shiv Senas, who have a strong presence in the state, have also called for a ban on imports of such machines, which are built using cheaper components.
The government said the two models were both imported from China.
The first model was built in 2014, while the second one was built last year.
The cost of the machines is around Rs 3,200.
The announcement came after the Maharashtra government introduced a new model of the same model.
The Shiv Seni also said it would push for a national ban on the imports of these machines.
Earlier this year, the government banned imports of imported washing machines in India.
The Indian government has set an ambitious target of halving the number of people dying from heat stroke in the next 15 years.
