Proposed safeguard duty on solar cells to increase tariffs to Rs 3.30/unit from lowest bid tariffs of Rs 2.44/unit
Around 3000 MW - 4000 MW of projects auctioned in 2017 to be impacted negatively.

Indian government's proposal to impose a 70% safeguard duty on solar cells and modules from China and Malaysia is likely to increase power tariffs to Rs 3.30 per kWh, an increase of 35% from the lowest bid value of Rs 2.44/kWh. The increase will have a negative impact on power producers who have signed low cost power purchase agreements and may further stall under-construction projects for which all the required solar panels were not imported.
