About Anti-dumping Duty

  • An anti-dumping duty is a protectionist tariff that a domestic government imposes on foreign imports that it believes are dumped.
  • The imposition of anti-dumping duty is permissible under the World Trade Organization regime. 
  • It is aimed at ensuring fair trading practices and creating a level-playing field for local producers vis-a-vis foreign producers and exporters.
  • These tariffs can also lead to higher prices for domestic consumers.
