Better plating :-)

It sounds like the plating is porous.

What is your substrate; unfortunately I haven't bought any battery caps from India in recent years and do not know what they are made from! The nickel could be thin and porous, allowing for corrosion of the substrate, but with so little information this is only a guess. Perhaps you can tell us where on the cap it is going yellow - is it in a low current density area?

Dear sir,

I hope you are doing barrel plating if yes check metal content, boric acid etc optimize it and also check if your barrel holes not chocked up. More detail can be of more help.
