A foreign entity conducting business in India through a PE may be subject to taxes on the profits generated whereas there is no tax liability in the country in the absence of a PE as no income is deemed to accrue. With the solar modules constituting more than 60 percent of the total project cost, such inquiries are essential. This may, however, strain India’s relations with China.
In a bid to reduce Chinese imports, India imposed 40 percent Basic Customs Duty (BCD) on solar modules and 25 percent on solar cells in April 2022. However, India's imports of solar cells and modules from China have continued to rise. Meanwhile, in 2020, India made government approval mandatory for all FDI from border-sharing countries including China.
