On April 17, India claimed American incentives like credits and rebates for renewable energy at the state and local level violate global trade rules. India cited incentives in Austin, Los Angeles, the state of California, and the state of Michigan, saying these programs are contingent upon the use of domestic products. The complaint, which was forward to the World Trade Organization (WTO), said the programs violate the Agreement on Trade-Related Investment Measures (TRIMs) and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) because they do not provide the same treatment to goods made in different countries. The claim has been seen in response to the February 6 WTO dispute settlement initiated by the U.S. over a national solar program in India.
