On October 31, 1999, the Department received a request for an administrative review of the countervailing duty order on certain iron-metal castings from India from Howrah Ferrous Limited, for the period January 1, 1999 through December 31, 1999.

The applicable regulation, 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), states that if a party that requested an administrative review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review, the Secretary will rescind the review. In this case, respondents have withdrawn their request within the 90-day period. No other interested party requested a review, and we have received no other submissions regarding the withdrawal of the request for review. Therefore, we are rescinding this review of the countervailing duty order on certain iron-metal castings from India covering the period January 1, 1999 through December 31, 1999.
