Anti-dumping duty on chemical imports from 6 nations

The government is expected to impose anti-dumping duty of up to $127 per tonne on a chemical, used in flavours and fragrance industry, originating from six countries, including the US and the EU.

The move is aimed at protecting the domestic industry from cheap in-bound shipments from the six countries – European Union, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Chinese Taipei and the US.

The Directorate General of Anti-dumping and Allied Duties (DGAD) during its investigation has concluded that “2-Ethyl Hexanol” have entered the Indian market from these countries at prices “less than their normal values”.

In November 2014, India had imposed anti-dumping duty of USD 2,715 per tonne on import of the chemical from China for a period of five years to save the domestic industry from cheap shipments.
