NEW DELHI: Petitioners and respondents have been given time to make written submissions to the Directorate General of Anti-dumping and Allied Duties (DGAD) after Tuesday’s hearing.
Jupiter Solar CEO Dhruv Sharma told BusinessLine: “There has been no outcome of today’s hearing. There were oral arguments from both parties.
“The respondents have been given time till December 19 to submit their position in writing to the DGAD. The petitioners will have an opportunity to respond in writing by January 2.”
The petition has been filed by the Indian Solar Manufacturers’ Association (ISMA), alleging predatory pricing by Chinese, Taiwanese and Malaysian solar equipment manufacturers.
ISMA General Secretary HR Gupta said in a statement: “We are positive in our approach that we have been able to evidence relevant aspects of the case to endorse our strongly-held belief of predatory pricing. Urgent remedial action is required in order to save investments, employment, improve energy security and derail the skewed import dependence.”
