The attack on Indian troops by the Chinese Army in violation of peace talks on the Line of Actual Control between India and China is being condemned all over the country. In this sequence, the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has called for the boycott of Chinese products. The CIAT made the call at a time when the India-China standoff in the Galvan Valley in Ladakh turned violent on Monday, with many people killed and wounded on both sides.
CAIT said that the main thing is that the import of finished products in China by about one lakh crore rupees ($ 13 billion) should be reduced from December 2021. India currently imports 5.25 lakh crore rupees ($ 70 billion) worth of goods from China in a year.
CAIT has said in a statement that in the first phase of this boycott CAIT has selected more than 500 categories of commodities, including more than 3,000 products, which are also made in India, but still lured by cheap China. Their imports from the country continue unabated.
The statement said that no state-of-the-art technology is needed to manufacture these items and if there is a need then India is well prepared for it and manufactured goods in India should be used well in place of Chinese goods Which will reduce India’s dependence on China for these goods.
This list of Chinese products prepared by CIAT includes everyday items, toys, furnishing fabrics, textiles, builder hardware, footwear, apparel, kitchen items, luggage, hand bags, Cosmetics, Gift Items, Electrical & Electronics, Fashion Apparel, Food, Watches, Gems & Jewelery, Clothing, Stationery, Paper, Household Items, Furniture, Lighting, Health Products, Packaging Products, Auto Parts, Yarn, Feng Shui Items, Diwali & Holi Includes accessories, glasses, tapestry material, etc.
