For India, it is curtains down on the special market access granted by the United States under its Generalised System of Preferences (GSP) Scheme for a number of years now. The 28 Member European Union (EU) has already stopped benefits to India under its GSP Scheme a few years back. Reasons for the withdrawal are different. In the case of the US, Washington believes that India’s tariffs on American products are high enough and is continuing with several export promotion schemes which have an element of “subsidy” that runs counter to WTO Rules. As for EU, it has actually “denied” GSP benefits to India on grounds that it does not co-operate in checking drug trafficking. India does not deal in this business. Pakistan gets these benefits as it has promised to co-operate with the EU in tackling drug trafficking.
