India imposed higher customs duties on U.S. goods in response to measures taken by Washington. The charges have been imposed on 28 products including chickpeas, phosphoric acid, apples, almonds and walnuts; India would get about $217 million from the higher tariffs, the Press Trust of India reported. The move follows President Donald Trump’s decision on June 1 to end trade concessions on $5.7 billion of goods India shipped to the U.S. as of 2017. These include imitation jewelry, leather products, pharmaceuticals, chemical and plastics.

India last year announced higher tariffs on items in retaliation for the U.S. imposing higher levies on some products shipped from the South Asian nation, mirroring steps taken by China and the European Union.
