India imposes anti-dumping duty on China and Japan

NEW DELHI, INDIA: The government of India has imposed anti-dumping duty of up to $1.41 per kg on imports of a gas, used primarily for refrigeration purpose, to protect domestic players from cheap Chinese and Japanese shipments.

The restrictive duty on the import of ‘1,1,1,2-Tetrafluoroethane or R-134a’ would be imposed for a period of five years, informed the Department of Revenue.

The duty would range from between $0.69 per kg and $1.41 per kg on imports of the gas from Japan and China, it said.

“The anti-dumping duty imposed shall be levied for a period of five years and shall be payable in Indian currency,” said the department.

R-134a is an inert gas used primarily as a “high temperature” refrigerant for domestic refrigeration and automobile air conditioners. Other uses include plastic foam blowing and as a cleaning material and for removing moisture from compressed air.

The Directorate General of Anti-Dumping and Allied Duties (DGAD), a nodal agency under the Commerce Ministry, had recommended the imposition of duty after an investigation. The DGAD had concluded in its probe that the domestic industry had suffered a material injury on account of dumping of the product by the two countries.
