And whereas the Central Government had extended the anti-dumping duty imposed on the subject goods originating in, or exported from the subject countries vide notification No. 07/2014-Customs (ADD), dated the 23rd January, 2014, published in the Gazette of India, Part II, Section 3, Sub-section (i), vide number G.S.R.­­­­ 49(E), dated the 23rd January, 2014 up to and inclusive of 5th January, 2015;

  • a) the subject goods have continued to enter the Indian market from China PR at prices less than their normal values and the dumping margin is substantial and above de minimis. However, there has been insignificant imports from Indonesia though the dumping margin is positive and above de minimis;

However, in view of insignificant imports during the injury investigation period and in the absence of credible evidence supporting likelihood of recurrence of dumping from Indonesia the DA concludes that there is no imminent likelihood of recurrence of dumping from Indonesia; and
  • d) injury to the domestic industry is likely to continue in the event of cessation of anti-dumping duty on imports of subject goods from China PR because of continuation of dumped imports from that country,
  •
