The Indian government has decided to impose anti-dumping duties on circular weaving machines originating in China.
The anti-dumping duties will be imposed for a period of five years until April 11, 2015.
The Chinese subsidiary of Starlinger & Co. Ltd. Austria, has managed to obtain zero anti-dumping tax, while other Chinese companies will pay a duty of US $1,193 / per set.
The restrictive duty has been imposed on import of “Circular Weaving Machines having six or more shuttles for weaving PP/HDPE fabric of width exceeding 30 cm”.
The circular woven fabrics made by such machines are widely used in packaging applications, such as packaging of cement, fertilisers and chemicals.
