Post date: 04/04/2019 - 18:32
The government of India has notified the imposition of anti-dumping duty on the Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) sheets for solar modules imported from China PR, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, and Thailand for five years »to eliminate injury caused to the domestic industry by the unfair trade practices of dumping and to re-establish open and fair competition in the Indian market,« says consultancy Mercom Capital Group. Anti-dumping measures would not affect the availability of the products to the consumers.
In April 2018, the office of Directorate General of Anti-Dumping and Allied Duties (DGAD/DGTR) had initiated an investigation on the import of EVA sheets for solar modules imported from China PR, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, and Thailand. Later, imports from South Korea were excluded from the investigation as DGTR found that these imports are mostly EVA resins, the raw material for EVA sheets. According to Mercom, the petition was filed by RenewSys, Vishakha Renewables Private Limited, and Allied Glasses Private Limited.
