Last Updated: 03-Feb-2018
Indian government has imposed duty on imports of 'Methyl Ethyl Keton' from China, Japan, South Africa and Taiwan. Cetex Petrochemicals Ltd had filed an application for investigations into alleged dumping of the chemical. Directorate General of Antidumping and Allied Duties (DGAD) has investigated the same and recommended imposition of duties for a period of 3 years. The duty is also aimed at ensuring fair trading practises and creating a level-playing field for domestic producers with regard to foreign producers and exporters. India has already imposed anti-dumping duty on several products to check below-cost imports from countries including China.
