NEW DELHI (ICIS news)--India has levied a new reference price-based anti-dumping duty (ADD) on the import of sun/dust control polyester films from Taiwan and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for five years with immediate effect, a government official said on Thursday.

The ADD on polyester films of Taiwanese origin would be calculated as equivalent to the difference between a reference price (RP) of $7.99/kg and the price of import parcel (landed price) at an Indian port.

The ADD on films of UAE origin would be worked out as the difference between an RP of $8.17/Kg and the landed price of imports. 

This tariff is the same as the previous one that lapsed on 25 August after the expiry of a one-year extension. The new ADD has been levied at the recommendation of the anti-dumping authority (ADA).

In India, Garware Polyesters Limited (GPL) is the sole producer of sun/dust control polyester films.
