Amendment of the Order on OCTG From India

    The period to appeal the CIT's decision has passed, and a final and 
conclusive court decision has been reached in this case. Therefore, the 
Department is amending the antidumping duty order \12\ on OCTG from 
India to exclude from the order subject merchandise produced and 
exported by GVN because the revised weighted-average dumping margin for 
GVN is de minimis. This exclusion does not apply to merchandise 
produced by GVN and exported by any other company or merchandise 
produced by any other company and exported by GVN. Resellers of 
merchandise produced by GVN, are also not entitled to this exclusion.

Jindal SAW................................  11.24
All Others................................  5.79
------------------------------------------------------------------------


---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ Cash deposit rates are lower than estimated weighted-
average dumping margins due to offsets for export subsidies.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation, in Part

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, the Department 
has instructed CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on all relevant 
entries of OCTG from India.\14\ These instructions suspending 
liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. However, 
because the estimated weighted-average dumping margin for merchandise 
produced and exported by GVN's is de minimis, the Department is 
directing U.S. Customs and Border Protection to liquidate all entries 
produced and exported by GVN currently suspended without regard to 
antidumping duties, and to not to suspend liquidation of entries of 
subject merchandise where GVN acted as both the producer and exporter.

to this exclusion from suspension of liquidation and are subject to the 
cash deposit rate for the all-others entity.
