India and the US are facing off at the WTO’s dispute settlement mechanism over the imposition of import duties on steel and aluminum by the Trump administration on March 9 this year. The increased tariff has impacted around $1.5 billion worth of Indian exports to the US.

New Delhi (Sputnik) — In the face of US protectionism, India has proposed retaliatory import duties of up to 100% to be levied from June onwards on a list of American goods. The 20 items include peas, chickpeas, fresh apples, walnuts, soybean oil, refined palm olein, coco powder, chocolate products, golf cars, motorcycles with engine capacity of over 800 cc and other goods and vehicles with spark-ignition internal combustion piston engines.
