Duty Inversion

Why in news?
In budget 2015, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that "Duty Inversion" will be corrected.

So what is it?
  • -the import tax on finished products is lower than that on parts,
  • -affects the competitiveness of local manufacturers.
    • -for example, importing components of LED TV costlier than importing LED TV.
  • So, domestic industries fail to compete.

Where was it happening?India's free-trade pacts (FTAs) with Japan, South Korea and the 10-nation ASEAN have been blamed for the inverted duty structure.

Significance:

  • as proposed in the budget, will give a big boost to the Make in India campaign and promote quality and competitive local production.
