Imposition of  anti-dumping duty on imports of   Metaphenylene Diamine (MPDA)

Originating in or Exported from China PRC

 

 

Dear Members,

 

The  Department of Revenue, Ministry of Finance, Government of India  has issued Notification No. 05/2019 - Customs (ADD) dated 24.01.2019 regarding imposition of anti-dumping duty on imports of  Metaphenylene Diamine (MPDA) Originating in or Exported from China PRC.

 

We understand that, the designated authority vide notification No.7/2/20 18 DGAD, dated the 26th February, 2018 had initiated the review in the matter of continuation of anti-dumping duty on imports of ‘Metaphenylene Diamine’  originating in or exported from China PR imposed vide notification No. 11/2014- Customs (ADD), dated the 11th March, 2014.

 

The Designated Authority in its final findings, published vide notification No. F. No.7/2/2018-DGAD, dated the 13th December, 2018 published in the Gazette of India, Extraordinary, Part I, Section 1, dated the 13th December, 2018 has come to the conclusion that:

 

  1. imports from China PR continue to command a significant share in the domestic market;

  1. there has been continued dumping of the subject goods from China PR and the dumping is likely to continue and increase if the anti-dumping duty is allowed to cease;

  1. even when the performance of the domestic industry improved in respect of volume parameters, the domestic industry was not able to improve its market share and was still holding a share much lower than imports. Further, its performance deteriorated in respect of price parameters to such an extent that the domestic industry was suffering financial losses, cash losses and negative return on investment. Growth of the domestic industry is adverse. The domestic industry has suffered continued injury;

  1. there is likelihood of continuation of dumping and injury to the domestic industry.

and has recommended the imposition of definitive anti-dumping duty on the imports of subject goods, originating in or exported from the subject country and imported into India, in order to remove injury to the domestic industry.

 

Considering the aforesaid final findings of the designated authority, the duties imposed are as follows:
