Concluding its investigations and confirming dumping of aluminum and zinc-coated steel products from China, Vietnam and South Korea, India’s Directorate General for Trade Remedies (DGTR) has recommended imposition of provisional antidumping duties, a government official has said citing the directorate’s investigation report.

The official said that recommendations for imposition of the provisional antidumping (AD) rates have been forwarded to the Department of Revenues under the Ministry of Finance for official notifications.

Elaborating on the further procedures to be followed by the DGTR, the official said that provisional AD rates have been circulated to all stakeholders and fresh comments and representations have been invited following which the DGTR will hold further oral hearings before announcing the final definitive AD rates and the period for which they will be in force.

The AD rates recommended by the DGTR range between $28.67/mt to $122.66/mt in the case of aluminum and zinc-coated steel products from South Korea depending on the respective South Korean manufacturer-exporters. In the case of exports from producers in Vietnam, the rate applicable will range between $45.35/mt and $199.35/mt. In the case of imports from China, the AD rate applicable will be in range of $68.08/mt and $129.59/mt, the official said quoting from the official DGTR notification.

The original complaint against dumping of the products from the three countries of origin had been filed before the DGTR by JSW Steel Coated Products Limited.
