27/2018-Customs (ADD); Dated: May 17, 2018

Whereas in the matter of ‘Ceramic Rollers’ (hereinafter referred to as the subject goods) falling under sub-heading 6903 of the First Schedule to the Customs Tariff Act, 1975 (51 of 1975) (hereinafter referred to as the Customs Tariff Act), originating in, or exported from the People’s Republic of China (hereinafter referred to as the subject country), and imported into India, the designated authority in its final findings published in the Gazette of India, Extraordinary, Part I, Section 1, vide notification number 14/47/2016-DGAD, dated the 26th March, 2018, has come to the conclusion that performance of the domestic industry has deteriorated due to dumped imports from the subject country, and has stated that -

(a) imports are undercutting the prices of the domestic industry. Resultantly, the volume of imports has increased significantly;

(b) price undercutting being caused by the dumped imports prevented the increase in prices of the domestic industry which otherwise would have happened;

(c) the price-suppression effect of dumped imports from subject country has resulted in significant erosion in profitability of the domestic industry;

(d) the domestic industry has been prevented from increasing its production, capacity utilization and market share despite existence of significant demand and capacities in the country;

(e) deterioration in profits, return on capital employed and cash profits are directly a result of dumped imports.

And whereas, the designated authority has recommended imposition of definitive antidumping duty on the imports of subject goods, originating in or exported from the subject country and imported into India, in order to remove injury to the domestic industry.
