Fake products have been there for decades now, and in the rural and suburban areas, where people prefer the duplicates over the original for the sheer difference in price, they have been immensely popular. But, its recent rise in the automobile market has brought the industry face to face with a new found horror. Not only do the fake auto parts account for 40 percent of after market sales, but also has caused a good number of accidents. Hence, customer goodwill had also lost in this process. Moreover, unlike FMCG or Apparel, where people buy them simply because they are cheap, fake automobile parts are the incentive of dealers as they receive a commission from the fake manufacturers to pass on these products.
