The Indian paper industry represented by Indian Paper Manufacturers Association (IPMA) has expressed concerned over continued growth in paper imports in the country. In a communication to ministry of commerce and industry, IPMA has asked for implementing a Paper Import Monitoring System for all grades of paper and paperboard to curb the indiscriminate import of paper in the country.

“Notwithstanding adequate domestic capacities, growth in domestic paper manufacturing is being hit hard in view of the continued surge in import of paper at low or zero rates of import duty enjoyed by some of the largest paper manufacturing countries in the world,” IPMA has stated.
