166. The Authority notes that the investigation was initiated and notified to all interested parties and adequate opportunity was given to the exporters, importers and other interested parties to provide positive information on the aspect of dumping, injury and causal links. Having initiated and conducted investigation into dumping, injury and causal links in terms of the Anti-dumping Rules laid down and having established positive dumping margin as well as material injury to the domestic industry caused by such dumped imports, the Authority is of the view that imposition of definitive anti-dumping duty is required to offset dumping and injury.
Therefore, the Authority considers it necessary to recommend imposition of definitive anti-dumping duties on the imports of the subject goods from
the subject countries in the form and manner described hereunder.
167. Having regard to the lesser duty rule followed by the Authority, the Authority recommends imposition of anti-dumping duty equal to the lesser of margin of dumping and the margin of injury, so as to remove the injury
to the domestic industry. Accordingly, the definitive anti-dumping duty equal to the amount mentioned in Col 8 of the duty table below is recommended to be imposed from the date of notification to be issued in this regard by the Central Government, on all imports of the subject goods, originating in or exported from the subject countries.
