India probing charges of dumping solar-cell imports

India is probing allegations that suppliers from the US, China, Taiwan and Malaysia sold solar cells in the South Asian nation below cost and whether retroactive duties should be imposed.

There is sufficient prima facie evidence to warrant an investigation into the dumping claims filed by local manufacturers Indosolar. (ISLR), Jupiter Solar Power and Websol Energy System (WESL), India’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry said in a November 23 statement on its website.

The investigation will include imports of both crystalline- silicon and thin-film photovoltaic cells sold in the country between Jan 1 and June 30, 2011. Suppliers, importers and users of the cells have until January 2 to respond to the allegations, it said.

India joins a trade dispute among the world’s biggest economies as the solar-manufacturing industry grapples with overcapacity and declining profits. The US set final duties on Chinese solar-cell imports on October 10 and the European Union is investigating whether Chinese manufacturers are selling cells and panels at a loss.

China started its own probe this week to determine if US, European and South Korean suppliers are dumping polysilicon, the raw material used in panels.
