India: Import Duty on Chickpeas Raised

On February 6, 2018, the Government of India (GOI) raised the import duty on chickpeas from 30 percent to 40 percent ad valorem, to curb imports as farmers are set to harvest the local crop in March, 2018. Earlier on December 21, 2017, the GOI imposed an import duty of 30 percent on chickpeas and lentils in a series of trade restrictive measures on pulse crops since March 2017.
