Impact on India of Tariff & Quantitative Restrictions under WTO

This paper assesses the impact of India’s unilateral tariff reductions and lowering of Quantitative restrictions since 1991. It then evaluates the WTO commitments on nonagricultural market access in the light of these reductions. This short paper based on hard quantitative analysis is a valuable addition to the literature on the impact of tariff reductions and NAMA issues in WTO.
