India has imposed anti-dumping duty on tempered glass, used in solar PV and thermal products imported  from China for five years to protect the domestic industry from below-cost imports.

The ministry of finance has issued a notification imposing anti-dumping duty in the range of $52.85- 136.21 per tonne on tempered glass imports from China.

The duty has been imposed on ‘textured toughened (Tempered) Glass with a minimum of 90.5 per cent transmission having thickness not exceeding 4.2 mm (including tolerance of 0.2 mm) and where at least one dimension exceeds 1500 mm, whether coated or uncoated.

The ministry notes that the anti-dumping duty imposed shall be effective for a period of five years (unless revoked, superseded or amended earlier)from the date of publication of this notification.

Investigations by the Directorate General of Anti-Dumping and Allied Duties (DGAD) had found that tempered glass has been exported to India from China below its associated normal value.

Also, it concluded that domestic industry has suffered material injury which was caused by the dumped imports of the goods from China.

The petition seeking antidumping was filed by India’s sole solar glass manufacturer Gujarat Borosil Limited.

Early this month Commerce and Industry Minister Nirmala Sitharaman informed Rajya Sabha that, “anti-dumping duty is in force on 93 products concerning imports from China”.

India’s imports from China marginally dipped to $61.28 billion in 2016-17 as against $61.7 in the previous fiscal.
