India may appeal against WTO’s panel ruling in solar case

India is likely to appeal against the WTO’s panel ruling that the country’s power purchase agreements with solar firms were “inconsistent” with international norms. The rulings of the WTO’s dispute settlement panel can be challenged in the WTO’s appellate body.

The U.S. had filed a complaint before the global trade body alleging discrimination against American firms.

The U.S. had dragged India to the WTO on this issue in 2014, alleging that the clause relating to domestic content requirement in the country’s solar power mission were discriminatory in nature and “nullified” the benefits accruing to the American solar power developers.
