Dumping duty on floatglass from China, Indonesia

K.R. Srivats

NEW DELHI, Nov. 29

SELLING prices of certain types of imported floatglass are likely to go up, with the Designated Authority in the Commerce Ministry recommending the imposition of provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of floatglass (between two mm and 12 mm thickness) from China and Indonesia.

The All-India Float Glass Manufacturers' Association had filed the petition seeking anti-dumping probe on imports of floatglass from China and Indonesia. Saint Gobain Glass India Ltd and FloatGlass India Ltd had specifically agreed to participate in the anti-dumping investigations. Gujarat Guardian had supported the petition.

Floatglass is used in the construction, refrigeration, mirror and solar energy industries. The investigations by the Authority had been confined to floatglass of tinted and clear variety. It did not include processed floatglass meant for decorative, industrial or automotive purposes.
