Police Seizes Over 2000 Fake Xiaomi Products In New Delhi


There is no doubt that Xiaomi is doing very well in the smartphone and smart TV segment in India. In fact, a recent report by research firm IDC pointed out that Xiaomi has a 27.1 percent market share in the smartphone segment in the country. But now, the company has informed that its products worth over Rs. 13 lakhs have been seized at the Gaffar market in New Delhi.

Police Seizes Over 2000 Fake Xiaomi Products In New Delhi


The Chinese smartphone maker has already filed a complaint with the local police, and raids were also conducted. "Police officers of Central District Karol Bagh Police Station along with the representatives of the company conducted the raid where they seized over 2000+ fake Xiaomi products from four shop owners who were arrested for allegedly selling counterfeit Xiaomi products," Xiaomi said in a statement.

The counterfeit products include Mi Neckbands, Mi Powerbanks, Mi Travel Adapter with cable, Headsets, Air Dots, and USB cable. In fact, these suppliers have been doing this business for years.

"These counterfeit products were allegedly sold in retail and wholesale to the customers from their retail shops: Galaxy Mobile Accessories, BCM Plaza, Shop No. 14 - Sega Market, Shop No. 2 - Lotus Plaza," the statement said.

To tackle the situation, Xiaomi has come up with a list of ways to find out these products. Here is how.

Step 1: Before buying any Xiaomi product customers should check security codes on mi.com.

Step 2: Customers have to visit Mi Home/ Mi Store to know more about the packaging, as the packaging of these products is very different.

Step 3: Customers should check the original Mi Logo on the products.

Step 4: Before buying any Mi Band, the customer should know that it will have app compatibility.

Step 5: Customers should know that all original batteries will come with Li-Poly batteries only.


Step 6: The unauthorized USB cables will break easily.

For the unaware, this is not the first time that any company has been affected by counterfeit products in the country. Earlier, companies like Sony Ericsson, Nokia, and Samsung have faced the same issues.
