Solar Panel Dispute at WTO

WTO Ruling against India

  1. WTO ruled against India’s imposition of local content requirements in its solar power programme.
  2. India will appeal against this ruling in the dispute which was raised by the US.
  3. WTO members are not supposed to insist on national content requirements and provide “national” treatment under which imports must be treated at par with domestic products.
  4. India maintains the ruling shall not affect its solar power programme or ‘Make in India’ initiative.
