On December 15, 2018, the Government of India’s Ministry of Finance delayed the implementation of previously announced tariffs on goods of U.S. origin until January 31, 2019.

The list of tariffs that was originally sent to the World Trade Organization (WTO) in May contained additional rates of tariffs on a variety of agricultural, textile, steel and aluminum, and other goods. The list of tariffs are in response to U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum products from India.
