Indian Government Bans The Import Of Chinese Tempered Glass Covers

India has imposed anti-dumping duty on tempered glass, used for protecting mobile phone screens, from China for five years to protect the domestic industry from below-cost imports.

The Revenue Department has issued a notification imposing an anti-dumping duty in the range of $52.85- 136.21 per tonne on tempered glass imports from China.

The duty has been imposed on 'textured toughened (Tempered) Glass with a minimum of 90.5 per cent transmission having a thickness not exceeding 4.2 mm (including tolerance of 0.2 mm) and where at least one dimension exceeds 1500 mm, whether coated or uncoated.

Investigations by the Directorate General of Anti-Dumping and Allied Duties (DGAD) had found that tempered glass has been exported to India from China below its associated normal value.

India imposes an anti-dumping duty to protect the domestic industry from an increase in cheap price imports.

Commerce and Industry Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had earlier this month told Rajya Sabha  that, "anti-dumping duty is in force on 93 products concerning imports from China".

These products belong to a broad group of chemicals and petrochemicals, products of steel and other metals, fibers and yarn, machinery items, rubber or plastic products, electric and electronic items and consumer goods, among others.

India's imports from China marginally dipped to $61.28 billion in 2016-17 as against $61.7 in the previous fiscal.
