You don't like it, do you? 

Is it correct to say “No, I don't like it.” when I don’t like it?

Hello, Prashobhini. Welcome back! How many years has it been?

It is correct to say "No, I don't like it" in response to "You don't like it, do you?" when you don't like it, whether the tag is asked with rising or falling intonation. However, the response would generally be abbreviated to "No, I don't."

It is unnatural to say "Yes, I like it" in response to "You don't like it, do you?" when you like it, whether the tag is asked with rising or falling intonation. The natural response in that case is "Actually, I do like it" or simply "Actually, I do."
