New Delhi, India – The Indian government’s ministry of finance has imposed anti-dumping duties on radial truck and bus (TBR) tires imported from China, according to an 18 Sept official notice.
The decision followed an investigation which found that Chinese TBR tires had been exported to India at “below normal value” causing material injury to domestic producers, said the document issued by India’s department of revenue.
The anti-dumping duties, on new tires with normal rim diameters above 16 inches, "shall be effective for a period of five years of the official notification," the revenue department added.
The document includes a table specifying tariffs of: $403.21/tonne on imported tires produced by Shandong Yinbao Tyre Group Co. Ltd; $277.53/tonne on those made by Aeolus Tyre Co. Ltd and Qingdao Yellow Sea Rubber Co. Ltd; and $245.35/tonne on products from Shandong Hengfeng Rubber & Plastic Co. Ltd.
Duties of $452.33/tonne are also imposed on 'non sampled producers/exporters' including; Good Friend Tyre Co. Ltd, Jiangsu General Science Technology Co. Ltd, Shandong Cocrea Tyre Co. Ltd, Shandong Hengyu Science & Technology Co. Ltd, Shandong Wanda Boto Tyre Co. Ltd, Shandong Wanshine Tyre Co. Ltd, Shandong Xingyuan Tire Group Co. Ltd. Shandong Yongtai Group Co. Ltd, Shengtai Group Co. Ltd, Triangle Tyre Co. Ltd and Zhongce Rubber Group Co. Ltd.
