G.S.R. 874(E). – Whereas in the matter of import of Digital Offset Printing Plates (hereinafter referred to as the subject goods), originating in or exported from the Peoples’ Republic of China (China PR) and Japan (hereinafter referred to as the subject countries) and imported into India, the designated authority, vide its preliminary findings F.No. 14/7/2011-DGAD, dated the 16th March, 2012, published in the Gazette of India, Extraordinary, Part I, Section 1, dated the 16th March, 2012, had come to the conclusion that –

(a) the product under consideration has been exported to India from the subject countries below normal values;

(b) the domestic industry has suffered material injury on account of subject imports from subject countries;

(c) the material injury has been caused by the dumped imports of subject goods from the subject countries,

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

And whereas, on the basis of the aforesaid preliminary findings of the designated authority, the Central Government had imposed provisional anti-dumping duty on the subject goods, originated in or exported, from the subject countries, vide notification of the Government of India in the Ministry of Finance (Department of Revenue), No. 31/2012-Customs(ADD), dated the 4th June, 2012, published in the Gazette of India, Extraordinary, Part II, Section 3, Sub-section (i) vide number G.S.R.416 (E), dated the 4th June, 2012;

And whereas, the designated authority in its final findings vide notification number 14/7/2011-DGAD, dated the 3rd October, 2012, has come to the conclusion that –

(a) the product under consideration has been exported to India from the subject countries below their normal values;

(b) the domestic industry has suffered material injury on account of subject imports from subject countries. The material injury has been caused by the dumped imports of subject goods from the subject countries. However, the injury margin was negative for the goods exported from Japan as the landed value of those goods were higher than the non-injurious price determined for the domestic industry and in view of the same anti dumping duty on the subject goods imported from Japan is not being recommended.
