- India imposes anti-dumping duty (ADD) on textured tempered toughened solar glass imported into the country from Malaysia
- The duty of $114.58 per MT will be in effect for a period of 5 years
- A government department DGTR had recommended imposing this duty after concluding investigation in response to a petition filed by Gujarat Borsil
The Indian government has officially imposed anti-dumping duties (ADD) on textured tempered solar glass imported from Malaysia. The Ministry of Finance has confirmed a duty amount of $114.58 per metric ton (MT) to be imposed on such products manufactured in Malaysia and imported to India.
The notification describes the product in question as textured tempered toughened glass with a minimum of 90.5% transmission having a thickness not exceeding 4.2 mm, including a tolerance of 0.2 mm, and where at least one dimension exceeds 1,500 mm, whether coated or uncoated.
This notification is in line with the recommendations of the Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR) in January 2019 (see Anti-Dumping Duty For Malaysian Solar Glass). Except for products from Xinyi Solar Sdn Bhd of Malaysia, the ADD will apply to all such products coming to India. The investigation started in response to a petition filed by local manufacturer Gujarat Borosil back in February 2018 (see New Anti-Dumping Petition For Solar Glass In India).
In another ongoing investigation against EVA sheets imported into India, the DGTR has recommended ADD of $537 to $1,559 per MT for imports from China, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia & Thailand (see India Recommends ADD On Imported EVA Sheets).
