South Korea as discussed was not even exporting products under HS Code 848630 in Year 1 and started exporting in Year 2, Though China has the maximum exports to India for products under HS Code 848630 but due to the tensions mounting between China and India in the recent past indicates an awesome opportunity for other countries like South Korea to have More Exports to India and have a huge market share for the same.

South Korea and India’s bilateral trade has seen a bloom in the recent years due to the efforts put by both the government to enhance the bilateral trade between both the nations and also the presence of KOTRA- state-funded trade and investment promotion organization operated by the Government of South Korea in the cities Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Bangalore of India is heavily working to bring Korean products in India and look India in a big way to have more exports,and also for the fact that Korea is looking India in a big way for other products as well and the bitter relationship between India and Korea would help Korea establish a place in Indian market. The main reason for increase in imports of products under HS Code 848630 is the increase of import duties for panels used in Television in the Union Budget passed, would boost the manufacturing of flat panels which are used in Television,as importing them would increase the cost of Televisions(TV) .Manufactures have welcomed the move by the government claiming that it would help increase the domestic manufacturing industry. While, presenting the budget, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley proposed to double customs duty on imported panels to 15% from existing the 7.5%. The government has also increased the customs duty on parts of LCD/LED/OLED TVs to 15% from the existing 10% to boost domestic manufacturing.This would indeed boost the Make in India initiative proposed by Prime Minister Mr. Modi in 2014. For the manufacturing of Local Televisions(TV) in India, manufacturing of flat panels used in it plays a important role, so to fulfil the needs of manufacturing sector, well equipped machines and apparatus are required, for that India imports products under HS Code 848630 from different countries so that efficient tools and machines are available while manufacturing.
