FIEO Services on FIEO.GlobalLinker offers the Indian Trade Portal - a powerful tool for enabling trade that provides all necessary information from tariffs to SPS-TBT (Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures-Technical Barriers to Trade) measures to MEIS (Merchandise Exports from India Scheme) to domestic GST on products permitted to export out of or imported into India.
The Indian Trade Portal provides vital information helping the domestic exporters determine the tariff preference they may enjoy vis-à-vis other foreign exporters through trade treaties signed by India & other countries to promote foreign trade.
For instance, India has MFN (Most Favoured Nation) preferential tariff with over 50 countries, and the nature of those agreements and making an assessment before investing, are two things that an exporter can do. Similarly, 50 nations have MFN preferential tariffs with India. Importers can use this information as a stepping stone to determine the advantageous course of doing business.
There are four inputs when using the portal:
1. Search product description
2. Select the ITC HS (Indian Trade Clarification based on Harmonised System of Coding) Code
3. Select country of interest for export or import
4. Select corresponding ITC HS code of the importing country
Information will be revealed around 6 main items:
There are other features on the Indian Trade Portal including monthly bulletins, information about GST and FAQs on the business trade answered by experts from FIEO.
FIEO’s Indian Trade Portal accessible through FIEO GlobalLinker is a one-stop for exporters and importers to get answers for all the questions they could have about international trade. They can keep up-to-date with current events in the sphere of international trade, learn specifics around policy about products and services to make better decisions about how to do business, and also stay abreast of changes in domestic policy.
