Government suspends gold imports, exports from SEZs to avert metal’s diversion –

The Government has partially suspended pure gold imports and exports from special economic zones (SEZs) , alarmed at the rampant diversion of the duty free yellow metal to domestic markets. SEZs are allowed duty free imports as opposed to a maximum of 6% charged on imports by other entitles.

The government is also planning to impose a minimum 5% value addition requirement on all gold exports from SEZs. A number of units were found to be indulging in trading gold instead of manufacturing, taking the advantage of the zero duty in the tax free zones. SEZ units earn arbitrage profits as high as 7.5% (6% customs duty plus 1.5% excise duty) if they divert imported gold to the domestic market.

Dumping Duty on EU Sodium Nitrite –

The Finance Ministry has extended by nearly one year the validity of anti-dumping duty on sodium nitrite imports from the European Union (EU). Sodium nitrite is a white crystal powder that finds application in pharmaceuticals, dye industry, lubricants, construction chemicals and textiles. The duty which was valid until April 14 this year, will now be applicable until April 10, 2014.

Dumping duty on Soda Ash imports from Russia, Turkey -

The Government has imposed a definitive anti-dumping duty on soda ash imports from Russia & Turkey. This anti-dumping duty will be valid for a period of five years.

Soda ash (disodium carbonate) is an essential ingredient in the manufacture of detergents, soaps, cleaning compounds, float glass, container and speciality glasses, silicates and other industrial chemicals. It is also widely used in textiles, paper, metallurgical industries and desalination plants.
