  1. there has been increase in the volume of dumped imports from the subject countries, both in absolute terms as also in relation to total production and market demand of the subject goods in India, resulting in a decline in the market share of the domestic industry;
  2. the imports are causing significant price undercutting resulting in price suppressing effect on the domestic industry;

  4. decline in the market share has resulted in increase in inventories with the domestic industry in spite of higher capacity utilization;
  5. this has led to domestic industry suffering material injury and imposition of final duty is required to offset dumping and injury;

and has recommended to impose definitive anti-dumping duties on all imports of 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 said Customs Tariff Act, 1975, and in pursuance of rules 18 and 20 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, on the basis of the aforesaid final findings of the designated authority, hereby imposes on the goods, the description of which is specified in column (3) of the Table below, falling under item nos. of the First Schedule to the said 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), produced by the producers as specified in the corresponding entry in column (6), when exported from the countries as specified in the corresponding entry in column (5), by the exporters as specified in the corresponding entry in column (7), and imported into India, an anti-dumping duty which shall be equal to the amount indicated in column (8) of the said table, in the currency as specified in the corresponding entry in column (10) and per unit of measurement as specified in the corresponding entry in column (9) of the said Table.
