Jan '17
The Directorate General of Anti-Dumping & Allied Duties (DGAD), department of commerce, Government of India, has initiated sunset review investigation of anti-dumping duty concerning imports of nylon filament yarn originating in or exported from six Asian countries. The period of investigation for the review will be April 2015 to September 2016.
Anti-dumping duty was first imposed on imports of nylon filament yarn from China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Korea vide a department of revenue notification dated August 29, 2006. Post first sunset review in 2011, the duties were imposed in January 2012. Now, DGAD has initiated the second sunset review to examine whether cessation of the duty is likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping or injury.
The product under consideration in the present investigation is synthetic filament yarn of nylon, also known as polyamide yarns or nylon filament yarn. It includes all kinds of synthetic filament yarns of nylon or polyamides, other than sewing thread, such as flat yarn – twisted or untwisted, fully drawn yarn, spin drawn yarn, fully oriented yarn, high oriented yarn, partially oriented yarn, textured yarn – twisted or untwisted, and dyed yarn, single, double, multiple, folded or cabled. Also, all types of high tenacity nylon filament yarn are not within the scope of the investigation.
Nylon filament yarn has vast applications in textiles applications, which includes saree, dupatta, women’s dress material, fashion wear, fancy casual knitwear, stockings, intimate wear, lingerie and night wear, kidswear, sportswear, activewear, swimwear, etc. (RKS)
