India slaps anti-dumping duties on glass imports from Saudi Arabia, UAE, Pakistan


The Indian government has imposed definitive anti-dumping duties on clear float glass imports from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and UAE, according to Indian newspaper The Hindu Business Line.

The paper reported on Monday that the import duty, imposed by the country’s Finance Ministry, would be valid for a five-year period.

Clear float glass is used in the solar energy industry as well as in the construction, refrigeration and mirror sectors.

Indian manufacturers Saint Gobain Glass India, Gold Plus Glass Industry and HNG Float Glass filed the petition seeking the levy of anti-dumping duties on clear float glass imports from the three countries, The Hindu Business Line reported, adding that two other float glass producers, Asahi India Glass and Gujarat Guardian, supported the petition.
