The Finance Ministry has extended by a year – up to September 12, 2013 – the validity of anti-dumping duty on ductile iron (DI) pipe imports from China.

This follows the request of the Designated Authority in the Commerce Ministry in its sunset review of the duty on DI pipe imports from China.

Based on a petition filed by domestic industry – Electrosteel Casting, Lanco Ltd and Jindal Saw Ltd – the Authority had initiated the sunset review.

Ductile iron pipe is used for transportation of liquid objects up to long distances at high pressures and are used for transporting water or sewerage disposal and gas, besides domestic and industrial effluents.
