However, before expiry of the duty Ishi Industries moved an application before the DGAD for another sunset review.

DGAD initiated the review investigation in October 2015 to examine whether the expiry of the duty on the import is likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and injury to the domestic industry. The anti-dumping duty was in force till October 5, 2016.
