India has introduced an anti-subsidy probe into increased imports of
select copper wire rods from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.
The probe comes following complaints by domestic players. As per a
notification from the Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR),
there is "prima facie evidence" of existence of subsidies on production
and exports of 'continuous cast copper wire rods' in these four countries.
As per DGTR, such subsidised imports are hurting the domestic industry
with their volume and price effects.
Under the government’s flagship scheme Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai
Yojana (PMKSY), the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural
Development (NABARD) has approved Rs. 65,634.93 crore loan so far to
93 prioritised irrigation projects. Under the PMKSY, through long term
irrigation fund (LTIF), NABARD is funding the central and state share of
99 prioritised irrigation projects.
According to the media reports, the government will further extend the
deadline for the imposition of higher customs duties on 29 products,
including almond, walnut and pulses, imported from the U.S. India
decided to impose tariffs from Aug 4, 2018 in Jun 2018, however, it had
extended it till Sep 18, 2018. The hike came in as a retaliation to the
decision of U.S. President taken on Mar 9, 2018 for imposition of heavy
tariffs on imported steel and aluminium items.
According to the media reports, the procedure to avail export
incentives under the Merchandise Exports from India Scheme (MEIS)
scheme has been simplified by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade
(DGFT). The move comes on the wake of promoting ease of doing
business for exporters. Under MEIS, the government provides duty
benefits depending on the product and country. As per the reports, DGFT
has started the process of system driven approval of the MEIS claim
applications from Sep 17 in respect of exports made through electronic
data interface shipping bills.
