China's imports from India stood at about USD 19 billion in the first 11 months, up 16 per cent.

India's trade deficit stood at USD 40 billion from over USD 60 billion in the previous financial year.

Amidst border tensions, New Delhi has banned over 200 Chinese applications as they posed a threat to the "sovereignty and integrity of India".

Multiple rounds of talks between the two sides to resolve the standoff have not yielded any concrete outcome.
