Customs duty bazooka for module manufacturing


24 September 2019 |

After failure of all previous and ongoing policy initiatives to kickstart domestic manufacturing of solar modules, MNRE has recommended imposition of basic customs duty on import of all solar PV cells, components and modules. It has recommended that duties of 10-15% be introduced in April 2021 and gradually ramped up by 2023-2024 to 30% on cells and modules, and 15% on wafers, glass, metal frames, EVA and other materials.
