chairman

My dear fellow exporters,

The Directorate General of Foreign Trade has extended the Minimum Import Price (MIP) on 19 steel products till 4th February 2016, as per Notification No: 31/2015-2020 dated 3rd December 2016. MIP aims to provide relief to local steel makers hurt by increase in cheap imports of these items. 

Imposition of MIP is not benefiting the entire domestic user industry. While the measure has led to curtailment of cheaper import to some extent, the move has also increased those of finished goods, idling capacities of small steel manufacturers and downstream industry. Many MSME units which in any case have low margins and are facing cut throat competition are finding it difficult to be globally competitive. 

EEPC India feels further extension of MIP will have serious negative impact on the user industries which are already struggling hard to survive in the present uncertain global economic scenario.

 

Yours sincerely,


(Tarvinder Singh Bhasin)
