"Just for your information, particularly long products import has gone up by 550 percent in Q3 and in terms of volume it has gone up to the level of 450,000 tonnes in last quarter. On annualised basis it becomes 1.8 million tonne against the total demand of the industry around 4 million tonne and if this continues, I think the local industry will be wiped off. Major imports are coming from China besides from various other countries including Europe, including Russia. The reason is that the economic situation or the slowdown in the growth in China -- since local demand in China is going down, they are trying to find out avenues to export that material and India is a good ground for them where there are practically no restrictions and a reasonable size market for them.The government should introduce some sort of steep import duty so as to deter dumping of products from countries such as China".
