Govt imposes safeguard duties on some steel imports – Feedback

The government has imposed anti-dumping duties on hot rolled flat sheets and plates of alloy or non-alloy steel to curb cheaper imports into the country , a government notification said.

The government will gradually lower the duty from 10 per cent this year to 6 per cent by 2019, the notification said. The effective duty rate would be arrived at after deducting the value of the goods and the anti-dumping duty payable when the import price is below $504 per tonne, it said. Indian steelmakers JSW Steel , Essar Steel and Steel Authority of India had approached the Directorate General of Anti-Dumping and Allied Duties seeking safeguard measures against cheap imports flooding local markets and pressuring margins.
