Govt initiates antidumping investigation against VSF imports
Mar '09
The Association of Man Made Fibre industry of India (AMFII) has filed an application before the government alleging dumping of 'Viscose Staple Fibre excluding Bamboo fibre' originating in or exported from China PR and Indonesia and has requested for initiation of anti-dumping investigation and levy of anti-dumping duties.

The application has been filed by Association of Man Made Fibre Industry of India on behalf of the domestic industry. M/s Grasim Industries Ltd. is the sole producer of Viscose Staple Fibre in India and has provided injury and costing information.

Grasim has claimed that there is no other producer of Viscose Staple Fibre. As per the evidence available on record, production of Grasim accounts for a major proportion of the domestic production. The production of Grasim is more than 50% of Indian production.

M/s Grasim Industries Ltd. has affiliated companies in Indonesia and China PR producing & selling the product, namely Birla Jingwai Fibres Company Limited, China and PT Indo Bharat Rayon, Indonesia. The Chinese affiliated company has not exported the product to India.

Whereas the Indonesian Company has exported small quantity to India, which is less than 3% of imports and negligible with reference to Indian production. Since the volumes of these imports are quite small, the government has not taken these imports into consideration.
