The Government of India has extended the imposition of anti-dumping (AD) duty by another three months on caustic soda imported from China and South Korea. The request for extension of the existing AD duty was made by directorate general of trade remedies (DGTR), the investigation arm of the ministry of commerce, to protect domestic manufacturers.

"...the anti-dumping duty imposed under this notification, with respect to China and Korea, shall remain in force up to and inclusive of the 17th November, 2020, unless revoked, superseded or amended earlier," the department of revenue said in a notification.

The anti-dumping duty on caustic soda imports from China and South Korea was first imposed on August 18, 2015. It was to end on August 17, 2020 after a period of five years. Now, it has been extended till November 17, 2020.

AD duty is aimed at creating a level-playing field for domestic producers vis-à-vis manufacturers and exporters from other countries.

Caustic soda, otherwise known as sodium hydroxide, is a chemical that is widely used in the textile industry for scouring, mercerisation and dyeing, which are integral parts of the textile manufacturing process.
