The notification has been issued on 27.05.2015, therefore, there is a gap between 25.01.2015 and 26.05.2015. - One of the issues raised was that the Central Government could not have levied the anti dumping duty retrospectively and that in case it did so, the provisions of Rule 20(2)(a) would be ultra vires the Customs Tariff Act, 1975 which d .....

is determinative of the question raised in these appeals. The first thing to notice about Rule 20 is, as its marginal note states, that it is concerned only with the date of commencement of duty. Once this is appreciated, it becomes clear that its focus is only on when anti-dumping duties are to commence. In Sub-rule (1), it speaks of anti-dumping duties levied Under Rule 13 and Rule 19, and states that they shall take effect only prospectively, i.e. from the date of publication in the official .....

whereas Sub-clause (b) specifically deals with duty to be retrospectively imposed, that is a retrospective imposition prior to the imposition of a provisional duty. It will immediately be noticed that the subject matter of Sub-clause (a) does not purport to be the imposition of an anti-dumping duty with retrospective effect. This is because it seeks to give effect to Clause 10.2 of the WTO Agreement. As has been argued by learned Counsel on both sides, the key to the understanding of the import .....

acts in these cases, such period has not in fact been extended beyond 6 months). Thus, it is clear that all that Sub-rule (2)(a) does is to enable the levy of a final anti-dumping duty from the date of imposition of a provisional duty so as to convert the provisional measure into a final measure, or so as to take within its ken the provisional anti-dumping duty already imposed. This aspect is succinctly put by "A Handbook on Anti-Dumping Investigations" by Judith Czako, Johann Human an .....

making of laws in conformity with the WTO Agreement, there can be no levy of anti-dumping duty in the "gap" or interregnum period between the lapse of the provisional duty and the imposition of the final duty. Such interpretation makes it clear that Clause 10.2 of the WTO Agreement is reproduced in the same sense though not in the same form in Sub-rule (2)(a). The same result therefore as is envisaged in Clause 10.2 is achieved by the said construction-that is anti-dumping duty may be .....

ntries of the WTO agreement have opted for the Rule by which anti-dumping duty is levied to the full extent of the margin of dumping. Such nations like Argentina, Mexico and USA therefore have, under the WTO Agreement, only a period of 4 months extendable upto a maximum period of 6 months (instead of 6 months and 9 months respectively) so far as the life span of a provisional duty is concerned. Most of Europe and the rest of the world have opted to impose duties upto the margin of dumping depend .....

However, interestingly enough, in the United States Manual dealing with anti-dumping duties, the following is the statement of law: Therefore, a period of time, known sometimes as the "gap period," may exist between the expiration of the end of the provisional measures, even if extended, and the publication of the ITC's final determination (the starting of definitive duties) where the DOC cannot require CBP to collect cash d .....
