India’s commerce and industry ministry recently suggested a provisional anti-dumping duty (ADD) of $15.54- 200.66 per metric tonne (MT) on the import of polyethylene terephthalate (PET resin) from China. Reliance Industries and IVL Dhunseri Petrochem Industries Pvt Ltd had filed a complaint claiming injury resulting from the alleged dumping.

“Having initiated and conducted the investigation into dumping, injury and causal link in terms of the provisions laid down under the Anti-Dumping Rules, the authority is of the view that imposition of provisional duty is required to offset dumping and injury, pending completion of the investigation,” the Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR) said in its preliminary findings. The probe began on October 1 last year.

DGTR can only recommend the duty but the finance ministry takes a call on imposing. The provisional duty can be imposed only after the expiry of 60 days from the date of initiation of investigation and remain in force only for six months.

The department noted that India is the single largest market for Chinese exporters. China’s share increased from 5 per cent in April-September, 2018 to 7 per cent in October-December, 2018, 9 per cent in January-March, 2019 and 10 per cent in Apr-Jun, 2019.

“The exports from China to India are increasing at a much faster pace than those to third countries. The increasing importance of India as a market itself highlights threat of material injury,” DGTR said.
