Chinese Taipei has dragged India to the World Trade Organization (WTO) on the customs duty imposed by India on information technology and electronics items.
The items on which India imposed duties include base stations, machinery and accessories needed for electronic chip wafer manufacturing, digital cameras, headphones, microphones, loud speakers and items used by telecom industry.
In May this year, Japan was the first country to raise red flags on Indian tariffs on ICT products. Subsequently Chinese Taipei, the United States, European Union, China, Canada, Thailand and Singapore sought permission from the Geneva based global trade body to associate with the Japanese complaint against Indian tariffs.
