NEW DELHI, India—The Indian government's ministry of finance imposed antidumping duties on truck and bus tires imported from China, according to a Sept. 18 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, the document issued by India's department of revenue read.
The antidumping duties, which apply to 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.
Tariffs assessed were: $403.21 per metric ton on imported tires produced by Shandong Yinbao Tyre Group Co. Ltd; $277.53 per ton on those made by Aeolus Tyre Co. Ltd. and Qingdao Yellow Sea Rubber Co. Ltd.; and $245.35 per ton on products from Shandong Hengfeng Rubber & Plastic Co. Ltd.
