                        No agreement has been signed exclusively with Bangladesh. Bangladesh is a member country of the South Asian Free Trade Agreement (SAFTA) and tariff for SAFTA has been reduced to zero percent for Least Developed Countries (LDCs), including Bangladesh, with effect from 01.01.2008. Certain textiles lines that figured in India’s Sensitive List forLDCs under SAFTA have been delisted with effect from 09.11.2011, which would allow Bangladesh zero duty access toIndia on these lines. No impact analysis has been made for the said zero duty access as it is too early to assess the impact of such duty free access to Bangladesh.

 

This information was given by Minister of State for Textiles Smt. Panabaaka Lakshmi in a written reply to a question raised in Lok  Sabha
