With an eye on China, India to allow only approved solar PV models and manufacturers for its solar play

NEW DELHI: In an attempt to discourage Chinese imports in India's growing green economy, the ministry of new and renewable energy (MNRE) has issued an order enforcing a list of approved solar photovoltaic (PV) models and module manufacturers for government-supported schemes, including projects from where distribution companies procure electricity for supply to their consumers.

This approved list of 23 modules and manufacturers (ALMM) is a non-tariff barrier and part of India' strategy of erecting other obstacles, including subsidising finance for promoting local power equipment usage and prior-permission requirements for imports from countries with which it has a conflict, such as China.
