Reuters :
India said on Saturday that delayed higher tariffs against some goods imported from the United States will go into force on Sept 2018.
New Delhi, incensed by Washington's refusal to exempt it from new tariffs, decided in June to raise import tax from Aug 4 on some US products, including almonds, walnuts and apples, and later delayed the move.
Officials from New Delhi and Washington, including US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, are scheduled to hold a series of meetings including strategic talks with their Indian counterparts in September.
Trade differences between India and the United States have been rising since President Donald Trump took office. Bilateral trade rose to $115 billion in 2016, but the Trump administration wants to reduce its $31 billion deficit with India, and is pressing New Delhi to ease trade barriers.
India, the world's biggest buyer of US almonds, in June decided to raise import duties on the commodity by 20 percent, joining the European Union and China in retaliating against Trump's tariff hikes on steel and aluminium.
