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;

(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.
