Meanwhile, a report by online firm LocalCircles on Monday said about half of Indian consumers surveyed said they did not buy made-in-China products in the past 12 months as an aftermath of the border tensions with China.
The report is based on a survey, which was conducted during June 1-10 and covered 17,800 citizens residing in 281 districts of the country.
Imports from China, however, increased 42 per cent year-on-year during January-May 2021, due to a rise in the import of life-saving medical equipment and medical oxygen equipment by India from China, according to the report.
“In reality, China’s share in Indian imports for intermediate goods is 12 per cent, and capital goods is 30 per cent, while final consumer goods is 26 per cent.
