With a view to promote domestic manufacturing and cutting imports of non-essential items, the Centre on October 15 banned import of air conditioners with refrigerants.

"Import policy of air conditioners with refrigerants …is amended from free to prohibited," directorate general of foreign trade said in a notification.

The government is taking steps to promote domestic manufacturing and reduce import bill of non-essential goods.
