|Title||Failure to provide adequate level of intellectual property|
|Description||INDIA is in the league of 15 trading partners of the United States being monitored by the United States Trade Representative (USTR) under its `priority watch list'.
The US move is for India's failure to provide an "adequate level of intellectual property right (IPR) protection or enforcement or market access for persons relying on intellectual property protection."

USTR placed totally 52 countries as priority foreign countries, priority watch list, watch list or Section 306 monitoring category Cigarette Tobacco For Sale Online.
