Govt initiates anti-dumping probe into imports of solar cells


Tuesday, October 08, 2013:Directorate general of anti-dumping & allied duties vide notification No.14/5/2012-DGAD dated Nov 23, 2012 has initiated anti-dumping investigation concerning imports of solar cells whether or not assembled partially or fully in modules or panels or on glass or some other suitable substrates, originating in or exported from Malaysia, China PR, Chinese Taipei and USA, on request from Solar Manufacturer’s Association, in accordance with the Customs Tariff Act, 1975.

The investigation is based on sufficient prima facie evidence of dumping of the subject goods, originating in or exported from subject countries, and injury to the domestic industry, and causal link between the dumping and injury, the authority has thus initiated an investigation into the alleged dumping, and consequent injury to the domestic industry in terms of the Rule 5 of the Anti-dumping Rules, to determine the existence, degree and effect of any alleged dumping and to recommend the amount of anti-dumping duty, which if levied, would be adequate to remove the injury to the domestic industry.

There is prima facie evidence to show that the normal value of the subject goods in the subject countries is significantly higher than the ex-factory export price, indicating, prima facie, that the subject goods are being dumped into the Indian market by the exporters from the subject countries. The dumping margins are estimated to be above de minimis.
