Director-General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) ne “free” se “prohibited” category me move karne ka notification issue kiya.

Additionally, Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR) ne Choline Chloride imports from China, Malaysia and Vietnam par anti-dumping duty of five years recommend kiya hai. And ye because of domestic manufacturers ke complaint se hua hai. Even so, Indian government ne defence production ko increase karne ke liye 101 items par import embargo introduce kiya hai.
