PXL/HO/Cir-041/2020-21                                                                     Date: 30.06.2020



Dear Sir/Madam, 

We would like to inform that Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR), under Department of Commerce, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, recommends various trade remedies measures viz Anti- Dumping Duty, Countervailing Duty and Safeguard measures after prescribed investigation of complaints filled by domestic industry regarding the aforesaid unfair trade practices/import surges that result in injury.

  • Anti dumping duty is recommended against dumping of goods at lower price than the price in their domestic markets;
  • Countervailing duties are recommended against the subsidies given by foreign countries to their manufacturing & exports;
  • Safeguarding duty is prescribed against surge in imports

Similarly, Domestic manufactures and exporters may also be subjected to trade remedy investigations by the trade authorities of importing countries. They may require legal assistance to contest these cases. In addition to the above roles in protecting our domestic industry against unfair imports, DGTR through its trade defence wing, extended legal support to the exporters facing investigations in other countries for imposition of countervailing duty or anti-dumping duty.

In this context, DGTR has issued measures through newspaper advertisements to sensitize domestic industries and exporters. Dept of Pharmaceuticals (DoP), Ministry of Chemicals & Industries has issued a circular to all industry associations about these measures. 

Please find attached the DGTR advertisement and DoP circular  for your reference and use.


Best Regards


Udaya Bhaskar

Director General
