Government Slaps Anti-Dumping Duty On China Made Ceramicware
India has imposed anti-dumping duty on import of ceramic tableware and kitchenware from China in a bid to protect domestic producers. Ceramic tableware and kitchenware shipped in from China will attract an anti-dumping duty of USD 1.04 per kg, making the imports expensive. All India Pottery Manufacturers Association and the Indian Ceramic Society had approached the Directorate General of Anti-Dumping and Allied Duties for imposition of the levy on the items. They had alleged that the goods were being dumped into India and consequently causing injury to the domestic industry. After a probe, the DGAD recommended imposition of definitive anti-dumping duty on the imports.
