WASHINGTON: The United States Trade Representative's (USTR) office said on Wednesday it is moving to end its exchange counter body of evidence against India after Washington and New Delhi settled on a worldwide duty bargain progress plan that will pull out India's advanced administrations charge.

Under the concurred withdrawal terms, the nations can keep on gathering computerized administrations charges until the new system is set up.

The USTR said for India, the beginning date for those credits was pushed back to April 1, 2022, with a three-month augmentation past the finish of 2023 in case the OECD charge bargain isn't executed at that point.
