Thursday, 26th November 2020

Mi India issued cautionary messages on November 23 against counterfeit products of an estimated value of INR 33.3 lakhs that have been confiscated from seven suppliers in India, four of which were based in Chennai while three were in Bangalore. 


Raids had been conducted in the market in October and November as part of an anti-counterfeit program after a complaint was filed by with the local police station.


After an official complaint was registered, the police in tandem with company authorities seized fake products from three prominent outlets in the vicinity.


More than 3,000 products were seized that includes mobile back cases, headphones, power banks, chargers and earphones. The owners of the shops who were running the racket in both cities have been taken into custody. Upon interrogation, the shopkeepers owned up to the fact that they have been in the business of selling unauthorized Mi goods in the market for a long time now.


In a press release after the raid, the company issued guidelines for its customers on how to identify original Xiaomi products with the help of some simple steps.


  • Some Xiaomi products such as Mi Power banks and all audio products come with security codes that can be checked on mi.com to gauge if the products are authentic.
  • Mi packaging and quality of retail boxes are quite unique and one can check at Mi Home or Mi Store to validate packaging.
  • An Mi India logo must be there on all authorized products. Mi.com will have the original logo
  • Original Mi fitness devices such as Mi Bands will be compatible with Mi Fit App.
  • Cables that are not authorized will usually be flimsy and break easily.


Besides this, the company has also advised customers to purchase their products from Authorized service centers only.

Moreover, Mi India has also set up a special body within the company that will be solely responsible for keeping a constant check on the market and adopting necessary steps against such counterfeiters and unauthorized entities.
