After finding that Chinese products are entering the Indian market through third countries such as Singapore and Cambodia to circumvent Indian laws, New Delhi has imposed anti-dumping duty on measuring tapes and their components originating from China and any other country, according to government officials.

The finance ministry not only re-imposed anti-dumping duty on Chinese measuring tapes made up of steel and fibreglass on July 8, but also extended the same to imports from other countries so that Chinese products cannot be re-routed through a third country, the officials said requesting anonymity.
