Anti-dumping duty imposed on variants of PFY

Ina notification released by the Department of Central Excise and Customs, Ministry of Finance, the government of India has imposed an anti- dumping duty on All Fully Drawn or Fully Oriented Yarn/Spin Draw Yarn/Flat Yarn of Polyester (non-textured and non–POY) tariff item 54024700 imported from China, Thailand and Vietnam ranging between US $112 and $527 per ton effective up to September 25, 2009.

This was apparently done to protect the interest of the Indian polyester manufacturers who has complained of dumping of these products at prices lower than those prevailing in the home markets of these countries. Earlier, the Directorate General of Anti-Dumping and Allied Duties, had initiated a anti-dumping probe by suggesting that Indian industry was affected caused due to imports" from China, Thailand and Vietnam at low prices.

When the proposal for imposing anti-dumping duty was initiated by the government, the Surat textile industry, which has the largest consumption of this product in the country, had protested against the decision. Mr Jariwala, Chairman of Federation of Indian Art Silk Weaving Industry (FIASWI) had then told fibre2fashion that, “There is already an anti-dumping duty on existing POY imports. Full drawn Polyester yarn (Filament / Silk Yarn) is manufactured in finer denier”,

He had added by saying, “And now as summer approaches, demand for this fabric will increase. Looking to that, if anti-dumping duty is imposed on yarn, indigenous yarn manufacturers will raise prices, which would result in high cost of yarn and low cost of finished product which will ultimately result in rise in import of the finer denier fabric, to the detriment of the Surat weaving industry”.

Earlier in the month, the Commerce Ministry in India, following the completion of a preliminary enquiry had concluded and recommended imposition of provisional anti-dumping duty on import of Flax fabrics from China and Hong Kong. This decision was taken on a petition filed by Indian manufacturers of Flax fabrics, which included Jayshree Textiles and other manufacturers across India.
