The application for initiating anti-dumping investigation and imposition of anti-dumping duties on imports of Isononanol (INA), 2-Propylheptyl Alcohol (2-PH), 2-Ethyl Hexanol (2-EH) was filed by Andhra Petrochemicals Ltd. in October 2016.
 
“As per the directions issued by the Hon'ble High Court of Telangana, the Authority initiated the investigation along with a corrigendum issued on the same date. The orders issued by the Hon'ble High Court of Telangana were challenged by the Authority before the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India through a SLP. The Supreme set aside the orders of the Hon'ble High Court of Telangana,” the DGTR said in its notification. 
 
The Authority notes that as a result of the aforesaid order of the Hon'ble Supreme Court setting aside the orders of the Hon’ble High court of Telangana, which directed the Authority to initiate the above investigation, it cannot continue with the investigation any further and hereby terminates the aforesaid investigation, it added. 
 
“Based on the detailed examination of the request, as per anti-dumping rules, the authority doesn’t find it appropriate to initiate anti-dumping investigation concerning imports of the products not being produced by the petitioner. However, the domestic industry, if so desired, may file fresh application, concerning imports of 2-Ethyl Hexanol (2-EH) from any country against which duty is not in place, if imports from such countries is dumped causing injury to the domestic industry,” the DGTR had said in its initial notification in July 2019.
