In response to a question asked on this subject, the Union Minister said that the government is studying in detail about the import and domestic production of all these items.

According to Nitin Gadkari, to eliminate the dependence of these goods, the government is not only insisting on making them in the country but also the possibilities of export by increasing production are being considered. For this, duty on goods imported from China can also be increased, which will increase opportunities for the domestic industry.

Morbi changed its technology to increase productivity, and reduced prices, which once again helped them regain market share and cease to tile from China. Gadkari said that now the PPE kit has stopped coming from China, plastic pumps used to come from China, now he has also stopped coming from China, even the spoons of ice cream were coming from China, now they are also in the country Is being prepared The Union Minister has informed that at present, imports of more than 4 thousand crore rupees have been stopped from China.
