The rate of duty will be 3.2 percent ad valorem. Articles classifiable under subheading 9403.90.8080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated, HTSUSA, which are products of India, are entitled to duty free treatment under the General System of Preferences (GSP) upon compliance with all applicable regulations, if the G.S.P. is renewed. This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R.177).
