India imposes anti-dumping duty on Textured Tempered Glass imported from Malaysia and other countries

Newsroom24x7 Network

New Delhi: Government of India has imposed countervailing and anti-dumping duty ranging from 9.71% to 10.14% on Textured Tempered Glass, whether coated or uncoated, imported from Malaysia or any country other than Malaysia.

Newsroom24x7 had done an exclusive news coverage on dumping of sheet glass from China in 2015. The latest imposition of anti-dumping duty is aimed at addressing the same problem that continues to raise its head on a continuous basis. Question arises, why the problem is allowed to linger on and harm the interests of domestic manufacturers. Delayed action notwithstanding, the anti-dumping duty that has now been imposed keeping Malaysia in focus would also hit China in a big way, both in the short and long run.

The gazette notification to impose the anti-dumping duty was issued on 9 March 2021. The anti-dumping duty has been imposed to protect the interests of domestic manufacturers who were suffering “material injury” as textured tempered glass was being exported to India from the at subsidized prices and also due to subsidization of the textured tempered glass by the exporting countries or by the subsidized imports of the subject goods originating in or exported from the subject country.

The present imposition of anti-dumping duty is directly linked to the matter of “Textured Tempered Glass” falling under tariff item 7007 19 00 of the First Schedule to the Customs Tariff Act, 1975 (51 of 1975), originating in or exported from, Malaysia, and imported into India, and the final findings, of a Government of India Authority, notified through a gazette on 11 December, 2020.

The Union Finance Ministry, in exercise of the powers conferred by sub-sections (1) and (6) of section 9 of the Customs Tariff Act, read with rules 20 and 22 of the Customs Tariff (Identification, Assessment and Collection of Countervailing Duty on Subsidized Articles and for Determination of Injury) Rules, 1995, after considering the final findings of the Designated Authority, in the matter of Textured Tempered Glass imported from Malaysia (or any other country) has issued the gazette notification to impose countervailing and anti-dumping duty.

Newsroom24x7 Network

Tokyo: India opened their campaign in the Men’s Hockey Olympic Test Event, with a facile win as they trounced Malaysia 6-0 at the Oi Hockey Stadium here on Saturday.

Forwards Mandeep Singh (33′, 46′) and Gursahibjit Singh (18′, 56′) scored a brace each for the Indian Men’s Hockey team, while Gurinder Singh (8′) and SV Sunil (60′) also registered their names on the score-sheet.

India had the upper hand in the first quarter as the experienced SV Sunil, Mandeep Singh and Gursahibjit Singh, all created chances inside the first 10 minutes. Mandeep Singh looked in good rhythm as he took two shots at Malaysian Goalkeeper Kumar Subramiam’s goal, and forced a save on both occasions.

It was in the 8th minute that India earned themselves their first Penalty Corner of the match, which was converted by Gurinder Singh to give his team the lead.

The following minutes saw India dominate their fellow Asian opponents, and win as many as four Penalty Corners through some great attacking play. First it was debutant Ashis Kumar Topno, and then Nilam Sanjeep Xess and Vivek Kumar Prasad also won PCs for India. However, good work by the first rushers, and a couple of good saves by Kumar meant that India could only manage one goal in the opening quarter.

The start of the second quarter saw India continue from where they left off, and score in the 18th minute through Forward Gursahibjit Singh, who was found inside the striking circle by Gurjant Singh to make it 2-0 in India’s favour. World No. 12 Malaysia also forced Indian Goalkeeper Suraj Karkera to make a couple of fine saves in the new few minutes, but could not pull a goal back before the half-time break. The Indians continued to attack the Malaysians at the start of the third quarter, and it was Vice-Captain Mandeep Singh who registered his name on the score-sheet in the 33rd minute, after Jaskaran Singh set him up well through some creative play. However, on the other end of the pitch, Malaysia were awarded a Penalty Corner just two minutes later, but could only force it wide of the post. India had some more opportunities towards the end of the third quarter as Captain Harmanpreet Singh and SV Sunil saw their shots going wide of the post.

The last quarter saw India put more pressure on their opponents and score three more goals to make it a very convincing victory. It was in the 46th minute, that Mandeep Singh scored his second goal of the match as India attacked Malaysia on the counter. A Malaysian Penalty Corner was well-defended by the World No. 5 team, and converted into an attack which was finished off by Singh to make it 4-0. With majority of the attacks coming from the Indian team, the fifth and sixth goals were also around the horizon and finally came in the 56th and 60th minutes as Gursahibjit Singh and SV Sunil scored respectively. For Gursahibjit’s second goal, it was Harmanpreet Singh who intercepted a Malaysian pass, and provided an assist to the Forward to make it 5-0, while SV Sunil, who was making a comeback into the side, rounded off with a wonderful finish with just seconds remaining on the clock.

The Indian Men’s Hockey Team will now face World No. 8 New Zealand on Sunday,
