The government on Monday extended the imposition of anti-dumping duty by three months on caustic soda imported from China and Korea to guard domestic manufacturers.
The duty was extended after considering the recommendations of the commerce ministry’s investigation arm DGTR.
Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR) had requested for extension of the existing anti-dumping duty on the chemical imported from China and Korea.
“…the anti-dumping duty imposed under this notification, with respect to China and Korea, shall remain in force up to and inclusive of the 17th November, 2020, unless revoked, superseded or amended earlier,” the department of revenue said in a notification.
The duty was first imposed on August 18, 2015 for five years.
