Circular No- 30/2010 dated 30.8.2010
Clarification regarding non-applicability of Anti Dumping Duty under
Notification No.15/2007-Cus dated 20.02.2007 to Spandex Yarn (Elastomeric Yarn)
falling under Tariff Item 5402 44 00 - Reg.
References have been received from the Trade and Field formations seeking a
clarification whether Anti Dumping Duty under the Notification
No.15/2007-Customs dated 20.02.2007 is applicable to Spandex Yarn (Elastomeric
yarn). Although the description ‘elastomeric yarn’ is not specified in the above
said notification, doubts have been expressed since the Tariff Item 5402 44 00
is mentioned therein.
2. The matter has been examined by the Board. Despite the fact that Tariff Item
5402 44 00 is mentioned in the notification, there is no ambiguity / confusion
in the description of the goods in the notification which clearly mentions
“Fully Drawn or Fully Printed Yarn or Spin Drawn Yarn or Flat Yarn of
Polyester”. Thus, it is clear that only specified yarns of polyester are covered
by the anti dumping levy.
3. Therefore, it is clarified that Spandex Yarn ( Elastomeric Yarn ) is not
covered within the scope of the Notification No.15 / 2007-Customs dated
4 Pending assessments, if any, may be finalized accordingly.
5. Difficulty, if any, may be brought to the notice of the Board.
