Lifting of quota restrictions

12
Dec '11
Government has, Vide Notification No. 99/2011-Customs dated 9th November, 2011 allowed duty free import of textile items from the Least Developed Member countries (LDCs) of South Asia Free Trade Agreement (SAFTA) including Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal and Afghanistan. It is too early to assess the volume of clothes imported from Bangladesh and other countries following the duty free import of textile items.

There would be a positive impact of free trade with various countries on domestic garment / fabric manufacture as assessed at the time of signing of various free trade agreements. The exchange of tariff concessions between India and the other countries would lead to growth in bilateral trade and investment in these sectors resulting in economic benefits to India.

The agreements also provides for bilateral safeguard mechanisms to address sudden surge in imports to protect the interest of domestic textile industry like concept of Negative list, imposition of safeguard duties and Rules of Origin.

Government has introduced several export promotion measures in the Union Budget 2011-12 as well as through schemes of Foreign Trade Policy 2009-14, including incentives under Focus Market Scheme and Focus Product Scheme; enhancing the coverage of Market Linked Focus Product Scheme for textile products and extension of Market Linked Focus Product Scheme etc to boost the Indian textile industries.
