NEW DELHI (ICIS news)--India has extended anti-dumping duties (ADDs) on imports of potassium carbonate from the EU, China, South Korea and Taiwan by one year to 9 June 2009, a government official said on Thursday.

The Finance Ministry took the decision at the request of anti-dumping authority (ADA), which wanted an ADD to continue pending completion of its sunset review.

ADA had initiated the review on 21 May following a petition from Gujarat Alkalies and Chemicals Limited (GACL).

Potassium carbonate is used in the manufactures of pesticides, pharmaceuticals, dyes, television picture tubes, ophthalmic glasses and certain chemical industries.
