India is not a tariff king, has the right to protect specific sectors under WTO: Experts

NEW DELHI: India is not a ‘tariff king’ and it has all the right to take appropriate measures to protect the interest of specific sectors like agriculture, international trade experts have said. Rejecting the US allegation that India’s import duties are one of the highest in the world, experts said that several developed countries and regions including Japan, South Korea, European Union, and America maintain “extremely high” tariffs primarily on agriculture products.
