In June 2017, a group of Indian module manufacturers filed a petition for anti-dumping duties (ADD) against foreign PV module suppliers. Jupiter Solar Power, Indosolar Limited and Websol Energy has filed the petition with the help of Indian Solar Manufacturers Association (ISMA). In reaction to the petition, the Directorate General of Anti-Dumping and Allied Duties (DGAD) opened an investigation in July against imports from China, Malaysia and Taiwan. DGAD has also released the list of suppliers who will be investigated during the on-going process. From China, it includes BYD, Canadian Solar, Hengdian, Hanwha Q Cells, JA Solar, Risen, Suntech, Shunfeng, Trina Solar, and Tongwei Solar. From Taiwan, it includes Solartech and Motech. From Malaysia, it includes First Solar Malaysia, Jinko Solar, TS Solar Tech, Panasonic Energy Malaysia, and JA Solar Malaysia. The investigation is expected to complete by mid or end of 2018. If the investigation results in increased module prices, many planned PV projects under low tender tariffs will be at risk delay, potentially slowing the growth of the market.
