|Manufacturer/exporter||Weighted- average margin (percent)|
|Jindal Poly Films Limited of India 9||5.95|

Disclosure and Public Comment
We intend to disclose the calculations performed to parties in this proceeding within five days after public announcement of these Final Results, in accordance with section 751(a) and 19 CFR 351.224(b).
Upon completion of this administrative review, Commerce shall determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Because SRF's weighted-average dumping margin have been determined to be zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c), we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of these final results of review. For Jindal, we will base the assessment rate for the corresponding entries on the margin listed above.
For entries of subject merchandise produced by Jindal or SRF for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate established in the less-than fair value (LTFV) investigation, 5.71 percent,
if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any entries produced and/or exported by SRF during the POR.

The following deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of PET Film from India entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the Final Results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate will be zero percent for merchandise exported by SRF; (2) the cash deposit rate will be 5.95 percent for merchandise exported by Jindal; (3) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (4) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the less-than-fair-value investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (5) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters is 5.71 percent.
These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.
