US initiates WTO dispute against Indian duties on US imports

Today, the United States has requested WTO dispute consultations with India concerning additional duties applied by India on certain imports of US goods.

The United States claims that the additional duties, which India imposed through a series of notifications issued between June 2018 and June 2019, are inconsistent with provisions of the WTO’s General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT 1994) by unfairly discriminating against US imports vis-à-vis those from other WTO members and by according less favourable treatment to US goods than that provided for in India’s schedule of concessions.
