The investigation has been initiated following an application filed by JCT Limited, Gujarat Polyfilms Pvt Ltd, Gujarat State Fertilizers and Chemicals Ltd, Prafful Overseas Pvt Ltd, and AYM Syntex (formerly known as Welspun Syntex). There are five other Indian producers of the product, namely, Salasar, JPB Fiber, Gupta Sythetics Limited, Century Enka, and Oriilon India Pvt Ltd. All the other producers have supported the application.
DGAD found sufficient prima facie evidence of dumping of Nylon Filament Yarn (NFY) originating in or exported from the European Union and Vietnam, causing ‘injury’ to the domestic industry. “Causal link between the dumping and ‘injury’ exists to justify initiation of an anti dumping investigation,” an official notification said.
The investigation will determine the existence, degree and effect of any alleged dumping and recommend the amount of antidumping duty, which if levied, would be adequate to remove the ‘injury’ to the domestic industry.
The period of investigation proposed by the applicants was April 2015 – September 2016, however, DGAD has taken the period of investigation as October 2015 – March 2017 (18 Months). The injury investigation period shall cover the periods 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 and the period of investigation.
