India’s Finance Ministry has extended the validity of existing anti-dumping duty on white cement imports from Iran, UAE until 11 April 2013.

Business Line reports that this this one year extension follows the anti-dumping directorate’s recent move to initiate sunset review investigations on white cement imports from UAE and Iran.

The petition seeking the review was filed by JK White Cement Works and Birla White.

The existing anti-dumping duty on white cement imports ended in April this year. With the latest extension, white cement imports from UAE will attract anti-dumping duty of US$32/t. In the case of white cement imports from Iran, the anti-dumping duty would continue to be US$38/t.
