NEW DELHI: The US has sought details from India on its importing licensing requirement for laptops, tablets and computers which is to kick in on November 1, and also wants clarification whether it will be expanded to more items.
In a representation to the WTO committee on import licensing on October 18, Washington also asked if India wanted to expand the use of the import licensing beyond the listed products and whether it put out a public notice and provided a comment period before making the announcement.
“On September 26, 2023, Indian officials announced that on November 1, 2023, importers will only be required to register on an `import management system’ in order to import regulated products. However, no change was made to the original notification (of August 3),” the US pointed out.
