The Finance Ministry has extended by one year the validity of anti-dumping duty on certain gypsum plaster boards from China, Thailand, Indonesia and the UAE.

The existing anti-dumping duty, which was to lapse on June 6 this year, will now be valid till June 6, 2018, according to the Revenue Department.

This move follows the Designated Authority in the Commerce Ministry initiating sunset review investigations on June 5 on gypsum plaster board imports from these four countries.

Gypsum plaster boards are used in interior construction in suspended ceiling and partition applications.

The petition seeking extension of the existing anti-dumping duty for another five years was filed by Saint Gobain India Pvt Ltd.

In April 2013, an anti-dumping duty of up to $73.8 per cubic metre was imposed till June 7 this year.
