The levy was imposed after the designated authority, the (DGAD), a nodal agency under the Commerce Ministry, recommended its imposition following an investigation.

The DGAD concluded that the domestic industry had suffered a material injury on account of dumping of the product by both nations.

In August, the DGAD had imposed provisional anti-dumping duty on opal glassware from China and the UAE for six months.

Anti-dumping duty is recommended by the Commerce Ministry, while the Finance Ministry imposes the same.
