  • Bars and rods, not rolled, in irregularly wound coils, of other alloy steel under HS 7227 from 10% to 25%
  • Other/hollow drill bars and rods and angles, shapes & sections of other alloy steel or non-alloy steel, under HS 7228 from 15% to 30%
  • Wire of other alloy steel under HS 7229 from 20% to 35%
  • Wire, ropes, cables, plaited bands, slinges etc. of iron and steel under HS 7312 from 10% to 25%
  • Screws, bolts, nuts, coach screws hooks, rivers, cotters, cotter-pins, washers etc. of iron and steel from 10% to 25%
  • Certain wire, rods, tubes, platades, elctroders of base metal or metal carbides or of agglomorated base metal powder, under HS 8311 from 10% to 25%
  • Regulatory duty on aluminium alloys under HS 7601 introduced at 10%
