Indian manufacturers are currently waiting for the results of an anti-dumping investigation into imports of solar cells and moduels from China, Taiwan and Malaysia.

PV Tech recently spoke to Indian glass firm Borosil about how new anti-dumping duties on solar glass from China might also affect the Indian PV manufacturing industry.
