GENEVA (Reuters) -- Taiwan has requested consultations with India on duties imposed on imports of certain information and communications technology goods, the first step in a dispute process, the World Trade Organisation (WTO) said on Monday.

In its filing, Taiwan said that India's tariffs on 11 categories of IT products including those used in machines for the manufacture of semiconductor devices, as well as cell phones, exceeded the bound rates. The European Union launched a similar dispute against India in April.

Under WTO rules, Taiwan and India should meet within 30 days, and if these talks fail, Taiwan can request adjudication by a dispute settlement panel.
