The duty, ranging from USD 47.29-USD 196.24 per tonne, has been levied for five years, a circular of the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) said.

Giving reasons for imposing anti-dumping duty, the CBEC said Phenol has been exported to India from United States and Taipei below their normal value, thus resulting in the dumping of the product.
     
It further said that the domestic industry has suffered material injury because of dumping of imports.
     
Phenol is a basic organic chemical used in manufacturing of antiseptics, industrial paints and cosmetics.
