Revenue department has extended anti-dumping duty on import of certain Chinese products, used in garment, footwear and toys manufacturing, for another five years. The anti-dumping duty on ‘narrow woven fabrics hook and loop velcro tapes’ will be charged at the rate of USD 1.87 per kilogram.
These products are mainly used in garment manufacturing, surgical and orthopedic apparatus, shoes and footwear, luggage/bags, toys, automobile upholstery and various other industrial segments.
The Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) imposed the duty based on recommendations of the Directorate General of Anti-Dumping and Allied Duties (DGAD). The DGAD made the case for continuation of the levy after its second sunset review of the anti-dumping duty in force on the imports.
