(ii) the performance of the domestic industry has deteriorated in the current injury period due to the impact of the dumped imports from these countries; and
(iii) the dumping is likely to continue and the performance of the domestic industry is likely to deteriorate, if the anti-dumping duty is revoked.
Anti-dumping duty is imposed on the basis of margin of dumping which can vary across countries, producers or exporters. Accordingly, there are variable rates of anti-dumping duty on different exporting countries, producers or exporters. Details of country-wise duty imposed are given below-
