India imposes provisional anti-dumping duty on black toner from China, Malaysia, Chinese Taipei

new Delhi. India has imposed anti-dumping duty on black toner powder imported from China, Malaysia and Chinese Taipei. It is used in printers and photo copy machines. The anti-dumping duty has been levied based on the recommendation of the Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR), the investigative unit of the Ministry of Commerce.

Domestic companies had complained to the DGTR about alleged dumping by some companies in these countries. The Directorate General then investigated the case and recommended imposition of charges. The tariffs range from $ 196 per tonne to $ 1,686 per tonne.

The Revenue Department said in the notification that the temporary anti-dumping duty under the notification would be effective for six months (unless an order to remove it came in between). In its investigation, DGTR had said that the export of these products to India is being done at less than its normal price, affecting the interest of domestic companies. In another notification, the department has increased the duty on flax fabrics (linen) imported from China and Hong Kong for three months.
