India plans to seek bilateral solutions to settle solar disputes US
NEW DELHI: India plans to use bilateral meetings to target the issue of subsidies that the US gives to its own solar programmes, as New Delhi seeks to overcome the setback at the WTO where it lost a case to Washington over the solar mission's local content rules. India sees contradiction in the US' stand at the WTO and its subsidy programmes. Even though India has appealed the WTO ruling, the commerce ministry now wants to have consultations with the US outside the trade body to find a compromise. "The US has its own subsidy programmes at the sub-federal level. If they are comfortable with their own subsidies, then why target us," said an official in the know. "We want separate consultations with them outside the WTO." Under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission, solar power developers are mandated to use India-manufactured cells and modules rather than US or other imported solar technology, which the US considered a breach of international trade rules. The US said that since India enacted these domestic content requirements in 2011, its solar exports to India have fallen to less than one-tenth.
