In May, India has already dragged the US to the World Trade Organisations dispute settlement mechanism over the imposition of these import duties.
"India hereby notifies its desire to join the consultations requested by the Government of Norway...with respect to certain measures imposed by the US to adjust imports of steel and aluminium into the US...and exempting certain selected WTO members from the measures," the WTO said.
An official said that to understand the developments on the issue, India is joining the dispute cases on the subject as a third party member.
"As a result of this substantial trade interest, India respectfully requests that it be permitted to join the consultations in this dispute," it said.
Trump has imposed 25 per cent tariff on steel and a 10 per cent tariff on aluminium.
