World Trade Organisation verdict on India’s solar dispute with US soon
NEW DELHI: The WTO ruling on the US’ stand-off with India over the latter’s solar power programme is expected soon as the dispute settlement panel of multilateral trade body will have its final meeting next week.
“This will be the final meeting of the panel. After that, its ruling will come,” an official said adding “we have kept our fingers crossed on the ruling”.
In February last year, the US had filed a complaint in the WTO alleging discrimination by India’s national solar mission against American products.
After both the sides failed to reach an agreement to resolve the matter bilaterally, the US approached the WTO for formation of the dispute panel under the WTO’s dispute settlement mechanism.
