One of the biggest reasons for the sale of counterfeit goods are their low prices compared to the original items. Whether it’s a designer bag or a diamond-studded watch one can easily buy their cheap replicas. Experts have revealed that the replicas of luxury goods are sold at 1/4th of the original price. Such counterfeit goods are sold at different markets situated in different cities of India and are quite a rage among shopping lovers. However, these markets are quite detrimental to the original brands and their outlets. Let’s know about the market locations popular for the sale of counterfeit goods.
