NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India has reaffirmed restrictions on the import of unregistered or non-compliant electronics products, an order that has been in place since 2021, according to a government order dated Monday.

"There is no implication of this notification. The import policy for these categories in question were restricted anyway, so its status quo," a government official aware of the matter said on Tuesday.

The order has been in place since 2021, and just needed to be updated with the notification on Monday, said the person, who declined to be named as they are not authorised to speak to media.
