India has initiated a probe against the dumping of a chemical used in glass and other industries from China to protect domestic manufacturers from cheap in-bound shipments.
The DGAD has found “sufficient evidence of dumping” of the chemical from China. “The authority hereby initiates an investigation into the alleged dumping, and consequent injury to the domestic industry,” DGAD said in a notification. In the probe, the DGAD will determine the existence, degree and effect of alleged dumping and then recommend the quantum of anti-dumping duty, which if levied, would be “adequate” to remove the injury to the domestic industry.
The 15 months period of investigation for the dumping probe is between July 1, 2015 to September 30, 2016. The injury investigation period will, however, cover the periods 2013-2014, 2014-2015, and 2015-2016.
