India increases tariffs on US goods
India has imposed higher customs duties on a range of goods coming from the US, effective from last Sunday. This comes as a response to similar measures taken by the US
A list of 28 products have been hit with increasing charges (such as chickpeas, phosphoric acid, apples, almonds and walnuts), which should result in 217 million US dollars in additional revenue from the higher tariffs, the Press Trust of India reported.

This decision is a reaction to President Trump’s decision earlier in the month to end trade concessions done to 5.7 billion US dollars’ worth of goods India shipped to the US (as of 2017 and which include imitation jewellery, leather products, pharmaceuticals, chemical and plastics).

When announcing the new measures resulting in higher tariffs, the Indian Government argued that they are “necessary in the public interest”.
