Our Bureau

New Delhi , July 8

THE Designated Authority in the Commerce Ministry has initiated anti-dumping investigation into imported nylon filament yarn from China, Chinese Taipei, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and South Korea.

The product under probe is synthetic filament yarn of nylon or polyamides, other than sewing thread, such as flat yarn-twisted and or untwisted, fully drawn yarn (FDY), spin drawn yarn, fully-oriented yarn, high oriented yarn, partially oriented yarn, textured yarn.

It has utility in textiles applications, which includes saree, dupatta, women's dress material/fashion wear, fancy causal knit wear, stockings and stocks, fashion accessories, elastic tapes, show/footwear linings, laces/fancy tapes, tie/scarves, feather yarn, ribbons/satin ribbons.

The authority has received a written petition jointly from Modipon Ltd, Modinagar, JCT Ltd, Hoshiarpur, Shree Synthetics Ltd, Ujjain and Gujarat State Fertilisers Company Ltd, Vadodara.

All these parameters collectively and cumulatively show that the domestic industry has suffered material injury on account of dumping of subject goods from the imports of subject countries. The period of investigation is from January 1, 2004 to December 31, 2004.

Chinese saccharin imports: In another initiation, the authority has set off anti-dumping probe into imported saccharin from China. Saccharin is a non-nutritive sweetener and considered to be low calorie substitute for cane sugar.

It is used in variety of industries such as food and beverage, personal care products, tabletop sweeteners, electroplating brighteners, pharmaceuticals. The authority found sufficient evidence from the complainants (A.S. Enterprises, Mumbai, Swati Petrochemicals Pvt Ltd, Thane and Shree Vardhyani Chemical Industrial Pvt, Ltd, Gujarat) that the normal value of the subject goods in the subject country is significantly higher than the net export price, indicating that the exporters from the subject country are dumping the subject goods.

Hence the initiation of dumping probe and the period of investigation is from January 1, 2004 to December 31, 2005.
