India says it's no tariff king, US also charges higher duty on some items

Indivjal Dhasmana/New Delhi 11 Apr 19 | 10:41 PM

India has countered US President Donald Trump’s charges of India being a “tariff king" that imposes huge duties on products like Harley-Davison against zero by Washington on motorcyles.


Sources said tariffs can't be compared on product to product basis, but on overall basis as every country has given its commitment to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) on specific products based on its necessities.
