Notification No. 17/2021-Customs (ADD)

G.S.R. 215(E).—Whereas, the designated authority, vide notification No. 7/28/2020-DGTR, dated the 28th August, 2020, published in the Gazette of India, Extraordinary, Part I, Section 1, had initiated a review in the matter of continuation of anti-dumping duty on imports of ‘2-Ethyl Hexanol’ (hereinafter referred to as the subject goods) falling under tariff item 2905 16 20 of the First Schedule to the Customs Tariff Act, 1975 (51 of 1975) (hereinafter referred to as the Customs Tariff Act), originating in or exported from European Union, Indonesia, Korea RP, Malaysia, Taiwan and United States of America (hereinafter referred to as the subject countries), imposed vide notification of the Government of India, in the Ministry of Finance (Department of Revenue) No. 10/2016-Customs (ADD), dated the 29th March, 2016, published in the Gazette of India, Extraordinary, Part II, Section 3, Sub-section (i), vide number G.S.R. 360(E), dated the 29th March, 2016;

And whereas, in the matter of review of anti-dumping duty on import of the subject goods, originating in or exported from the subject countries, the designated authority in its final findings, published vide notification No. 7/28/2020-DGTR, dated the 8th March, 2021, in the Gazette of India, Extraordinary, Part I, Section 1, has come to the conclusion that-

(i) there is continued dumping of the subject goods from subject countries and the imports are likely to enter the Indian market at dumped prices in the event of expiry of duty;

(ii) though the performance of the domestic industry has improved till 2018-19 from the base year, its performance has suffered deterioration within the period of investigation, and thus, the domestic industry remains vulnerable due to dumping of the subject goods from the subject countries and there is likelihood of injury in the event of expiry of duty;

(iii) the information on record shows likelihood of continuation or recurrence of dumping and injury in case the anti-dumping duty in force is allowed to cease at this stage;

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:-
