Apr '12
A total of 78 textile and apparel products from India are included in the negative list of 1,209 items that India cannot export to Pakistan.

The negative list has come into effect from March 21, 2012 and is likely to be phased out by December, 2012.

While over half of the 78 textile and garment items included in the negative list are man-made fibre/filament based products, more than 20 items in the list pertain to made ups, knitted fabrics, and knitted and woven garments, which are among India's major export items to global markets.

Speaking to fibre2fashion, Mr. DK Nair, Secretary General, Confederation of Indian Textile Industry (CITI), said, “There are 78 textile and apparel products in the negative list of 1,209 products (at 8 digit HS lines) applicable for Indian exports to Pakistan.”

“More than half of these are man made fibre/filament based products, where India's exports are not very high at present. But, over 20 products are knitted fabrics, knitted and woven garments and made ups, which India exports to global markets in large volumes,” he informs.

Talking about the duration of the negative list, he says, “According to the arrangement reached between the two countries, the negative list is to lapse in December 2012.”
