And whereas, in the matter of review of anti-dumping duty on import of the subject goods, originating in or exported from the subject country, the designated authority in its final findings, published vide notification No. 7/40/2020-DGTR, dated the 3rd May, 2021, in the Gazette of India, Extraordinary, Part I, Section 1, has come to the conclusion that-

(i) imports from the subject country in relation to total imports, demand and production continued to be significant despite anti-dumping duty in existence and the dumping and injury margins determined for the period of investigation are positive;

(ii) the imports without adding the existing anti-dumping duty are undercutting the prices of the domestic industry;

(iii) the excess capacity in the subject country is likely to increase and the landed value of imports is below the net selling price of the domestic industry in the period of investigation;

(iv) there is likelihood of dumping of the subject goods from the subject country and consequent injury to the domestic industry in the event of cessation of the current anti- dumping duty that is in force on the import of the subject goods originating in or exported from the subject country;

and has recommended continued imposition of anti-dumping duty on the subject goods, originating in or exported from the subject countries.

Now, therefore, in exercise of the powers conferred by sub-sections (1) and (5) of section 9A of the Customs Tariff Act, read with rules 18 and 23 of the Customs Tariff (Identification, Assessment and Collection of Anti-dumping Duty on Dumped Articles and for Determination of Injury) Rules, 1995, the Central Government, after considering the aforesaid final findings of the designated authority, hereby imposes on the subject goods, the description of which is specified in column (3) of the Table below, falling under tariff item of the First Schedule to the Customs Tariff Act as specified in the corresponding entry in column (2), originating in the countries as specified in the corresponding entry in column (4), exported from the countries as specified in the corresponding entry in column (5), produced by the producers as specified in the corresponding entry in column (6), and imported into India, an anti-dumping duty at the rate equal to the amount as specified in the corresponding entry in column (7), as per unit of measurement as specified in the corresponding entry in column (8) and in the currency as specified in the corresponding entry in column (9) of the said Table, namely:-
