India Impose Anti-Dumping Duty on China's Ceramicware

India, in order to save domestic producers, has imposed anti-dumping duty on China's ceramic tableware and kitchenware.

The duty imposed on shipping tableware and kitchenware shipped from China will attract an anti-dumping duty of USD 1.04 per kg making imports expensive.

The notice states 
"The anti-dumping duty imposed shall be levied for a period not exceeding six months (unless revoked, amended or superseded earlier)," 


All India Pottery Manufacturers Association (AIPMA) and the Indian Ceramic Society alleged that the products are being dumped in India which is harming domestic producers. They asked for the anti-dumping duty to be imposed.
After an investigation, the DGAD recommended imposition of a definitive anti-dumping duty on the imports. DGAD concluded that ceramic tableware and kitchenware, excluding knives and toilet items, are being exported from China to India "below its normal value, resulting in dumping".
Based on the recommendations, the revenue department in the finance ministry has imposed the duty. The domestic industry, it observed, has suffered material injury due to dumping.

Other Anti-Dumping Duty Imposes

The government also extended by one year till June 6, 2018, the anti-dumping duty on imports of 'plain gypsum plaster boards' from China, Indonesia, Thailand and the UAE.The anti-dumping duty on import of plain gypsum plaster boards was first imposed in 2013 and the DGAD has recommended extension of the same.

What is an anti-dumping duty?

Anti-dumping duty is the penalty imposed on the products imported at low prices in order to protect the local industries from unfair competitions.
Anti-dumping duties are evaluated generally in an amount equal to the difference between the importing country's FOB price of the goods and (at the time of their importation) the market value of similar goods in the exporting country or other countries.
