DGTR recommends levy of anti-dumping duty of $114.58/metric ton for a period of five years.
The Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR) has issued its final findings for the anti-dumping duty investigation concerning the import of textured tempered coated and uncoated glass from Malaysia. Mercom India reported that the DGTR has recommended levy of anti-dumping duty of $114.58/metric ton for a period of five years.
According to the directorate, “The domestic industry has suffered material injury during the injury period and period of investigation. This injury has been due to various factors including imports of tempered solar glass from Malaysia.”
“The domestic industry has suffered material injury on account of price suppression and undercutting by imports from Malaysia. The financial parameters on profitability and return on investment (RoI) are also noted to be adverse,” stated a DGTR release.
After reviewing the submissions made by the parties and stakeholders, the DGTR noted that tempered solar glass has been exported to India largely by one producer, namely Xinyi Solar, whose exports are evaluated as non-dumped. The exports from non-cooperating producers other than Xinyi Solar, have been evaluated as dumped, and causing injury as well.
The DGTR did not find Xinyi Solar to be dumping as per the anti-dumping rules, therefore their exports to India are not liable for an anti-dumping measure. The non-cooperating producers for whom dumping margin and injury margin have been evaluated will be charged with the levy of anti-dumping duty.
