Consultations

Complaint by the European Communities.

On 30 October 1998, the EC requested consultations with India concerning a series of increases in customs duties allegedly implemented by India. The EC stated that the measures in question relate to Schedule 1 of the 1975 Customs Tariff Act, the Special Customs Duty, and the Special Additional Duty. The EC contended that under these measures, the aggregate value of tariffs resulting from the addition of the different duties applied by India exceed India’s WTO bound rates under a series of tariff headings. The EC alleged violations of Articles II:1(b) and III:2 of GATT 1994.
