NEW DELHI -- India has increased duties on a range of agricultural, iron and steel products imported from the U.S., in a tit-for-tat move after the Trump administration imposed higher tariffs on some Indian goods.

The increase -- which follows similar retaliatory moves by China and the European Union -- would come into effect on Aug. 4, according to an Indian Finance Ministry notification dated June 20.
