DGTR prepares to levy of anti-dumping duty of $114.58/metric ton for a period of five years.
Recently,the Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR) has recommended levy of anti-dumping duty of $114.58/metric ton tempered solar glass which was imported from Malaysia for a period of five years.
The DGTR source stated that 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,during the injury period and period of investigation. This has been due to various factors including imports of tempered solar glass from Malaysia.
It has also noted that the tempered solar glass has been exported to India largely by one producer, namely Xinyi Solar, whose exports are evaluated as non-dumped. 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.
