The Indian paper industry today failed to get any relief from the Delhi High Court over the government's decision of not imposing safeguard duty on imports of coated paper and paper board.

A division bench Justice B D Ahmed and Justice Siddharth Mridul declined to give ex-parte stay over notification issued by the Director General of Safeguards on November 13, 2009, in this regard.

However, the court issued notices to the government and the Director General of Safeguards (DGS) and directed them to file reply to the petition filed by domestic paper producers - ITC, Ballarpur Industries, J K Paper and their lobby group India Papaer Manufacturer Association (IPMA).

The petition filed by leading paper producers and IPMA, requested the court to set aside the notification issued by DGS which falls under the Ministry of Finance.
