Hi,
Its true that almost all ply brands out source the production to the factories in kerala, Depending on the brand they have quality checks at various levels.
To check ply quality you need to look in to these factors. There are many local well known brands but the vendor should be reliable and give complete support in future not just selling it.
1. Cross section of actual ply sheet not the samples that company provide because most of the samples are poweder filled to cover the gaps from sides.
2. Ply weight is one way to check the hardness and type of wood used in manufacturing
3. Calibrated ply is to make sure all the ply thickness are consistant to avoid waves and undulations after applying laminate on the same.
4. BWP ( boliing water proof ), BWR ( boiling water resistance ), MR ( Marine grade or commercial grade ) are three variaties availble
5. Every brand has 3 range of plys so be careful not to be carried away just by brand name. Check for the which varriant of ply is used
6. ISO has nothing to do with ply quality, dont carried away by it. ISI is the quaility monitoring .
7. Certification can be demanded from the vendor with written warranty, Plywood borer is a major problem.
