Note that anti-dumping duty is a tariff imposed on imports from other countries that export products at a cheaper value thereby disrupting trade in the domestic market.

To ensure a level playing field in the domestic market, the government imposes anti-dumping duty on foreign imports when it believes that the goods are being dumped through the low pricing in the domestic market.

The duty is imposed to protect local businesses and markets from unfair competition.The imposition of anti-dumping duty is permissible under the World Trade Organisation (WTO) regime. The duty is aimed at ensuring fair trading practices and creating a level-playing field for domestic producers vis-a-vis foreign producers and exporters.

How this pans out remains to be seen. Meanwhile, stay tuned for more updates from this space.

RBI Imposes Rs 20 m Penalty on RBL Bank 

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on 27 September 2021 imposed a penalty of Rs 20 m on RBL Bank

for breaching deposit, board composition norms.

An examination carried out by the central bank showed that the private lender was non-compliant in opening five savings deposit accounts for a co-operative bank.

It conducted a Statutory Inspection for Supervisory Evaluation (ISE) which took into the account the lender's financial position as on March 31, 2019.

In a statement, the RBI said,

  • The examination of the Risk Assessment Report and Inspection Report and related correspondence in the matter, revealed, contravention of directions and non-compliance with opening of five savings deposit accounts in the name of a co-operative bank and failure to comply with the provisions of section 10A(2)(b) of the Act relating to composition of board of directors.

The RBI said it had also issued a notice to the bank asking it to explain why a penalty should not be imposed on it.

After considering the bank's reply to the show cause notice (oral submissions were made during the personal hearing and examination of additional submissions made by the bank) RBI came to the conclusion that contravention warranted imposition of monetary penalty on the bank.
