India extends anti-dumping duty on Chinese silk
Jan '12
Considering the expanding trade gap with China, India has decided to further continue levying of anti-dumping duty on import of silk fabrics for another five years.

The duty is meant to safeguard the domestic industry against invasion of low-priced Chinese goods.

A Revenue Department release said that import of certain varieties of silk fabrics from China would be subjected to an anti-dumping duty of US$ 1.82 to US$ 7.59 per metre.

India initially imposed the duty on import of such fabrics in December 2006 for five years till December 2011.

India's trade deficit with China was US$ 16 billion during 2010-11. The same has already crossed the US$ 20 billion-mark during the initial seven months of the current fiscal.

During December 2010, the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) undertook a review to ascertain whether ending the duty would result in continuation of dumping and prove detrimental for the domestic industry. The review recommended that the levy of anti-dumping duty not only needs to be continued, rather, it should be enhanced.

The Revenue Department release says that unless revoked, superseded or amended earlier, the imposition of anti-dumping duty should be carried on further for five years.

The release also stated that import of certain type of nylon filament yarn from Thailand, China, Malaysia, Korea and Chinese Taipei would be subjected to a levy of US$ 0.20 to US$ 1.51 per kg, for the next five years.
