A Complaint on Import Tariffs Lodged by Indian Solar Developer Firstly 2017-12-15

       The Economic Times reported that Acme Cleantech Solutions Company, a solar developer in India, has appealed to the court to pay import duty on solar panels and components at Chennai Port.

 

Acme has filed a lawsuit against Chennai Customs officials in the High Court of Madras. They claimed that since September 12, the company has been asked to provide bank guarantees as import duties and temporary bonds in order to deliver goods in the port.

          The tariffs on imports were due to changes in the classification of solar panels and components, shifting them from a category that does not require the levy of tariffs to a category of motors and generators, which have to pay 7.5% import duties and other fees.

          According to the Economic Times, the reclassification of Chennai Customs has been adopted by some other ports, even though the new and renewable energy ministers have written to the finance department asking for the restoration of the previous classification.

           It is reported that although many other companies are also affected, Acme is the only solar developer to take legal action. Most of the solar modules used in India come from abroad because of the limited manufacturing capacity in the country to provide global prices.

印度太阳能开发商首次就进口关税提起申诉

 

经济时报报道,印度太阳能开发商Acme清洁技术解决方案公司(Acme Cleantech Solutions)已向法院就支付金奈港口太阳能电池板和组件的进口关税提起申诉。

 

Acme已经向马德拉斯高等法院对金奈海关官员提起诉讼。称从912日以来,公司已经被要求提供银行担保作为进口税和临时保证金,以便在港口发放货物。

 

被征进口关税的原因是太阳能电池板和组件的分类发生了变化,把它们从无需征收关税的类别转变为电动机和发电机类别,而这些类别的产品必须支付7.5%的进口关税和其他费用。

 

“经济日报”称,金奈海关的重新分类已经被其他一些港口所采用,即使新能源和可再生能源部长已经写信给财政部门要求恢复以前的分类。

 

据报道,虽然其他许多公司也受到影响,Acme是唯一一家采取法律行动的太阳能开发商。印度使用的太阳能电池组件大部分来自国外,因为该国的制造能力有限,无法提供全球价格。
