BSE and NSE listed Asian Granito India Limited (AGIL) is bullish on the demand for the quartz from USA market on account of sharp decline in CVV and Anti-dumping duty by USA on import of Indian Quartz. Earlier USA had levied CVV and Anti-dumping duty of 87.5% on Indian Quartz, however now they have revised their duty to around 3.19% for Indian manufacturers, including Asian Granito India Limited, which will help company export Quartz to USA. Contradictory to that USA imposed anti-dumping and CVD (Countervailing Duty) on Chinese up to 336.69%. In addition, the final countervailing duty rates for imports of quartz slabs from China up to 190.99%. Together, these duties amount up to over 500%, for all imports of quartz surface products from China.
