“India has lifted additional duties on several American products, such as chickpeas, lentils, and apples. The fees were imposed in 2019 in response to the United States’ decision to raise tariffs on specific steel and aluminium items. These retaliatory duties were originally imposed on 28 US products. The Indian Finance Ministry, in a notification dated September 5, announced the removal of these duties on products including chickpeas, lentils (masur), apples, walnuts in shells, and fresh or dried almonds, as well as shelled almonds. This development comes a day before US President Joe Biden’s arrival in India for the G20 Summit. The event on September 9-10 will be preceded by a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.” (09/07/23)
