Hanoi (VNA) – The Directorate General of Anti-dumping and Allied Duties (DGAD) under the Indian Ministry of Commerce and Industry has recommended not to impose anti-dumping duty on AA dry cell batteries imported from China and Vietnam.

The Vietnam Competition Authority cited the DGAD’s announcement on the final findings of its probe on batteries imported from the two countries as saying that imposition of the duty on the imports “is not required”.

The DGAD found that the imported products did not caused significant damage to the domestic industry.

Though during the period of investigation (from April 1, 2014 to March 31, 2015, significant volume of the imports entered the Indian market at dumped prices, it has not impacted the domestic industry as it caters to a different market segment, the DGAD said.

The complaint against Vietnamese and Chinese batteries was filed by the Association of Indian Dry Cell Manufacturers.-VNA
