Mumbai: Bajaj Auto, one of India's leading two-wheeler manufacturers, has started a campaign against piracy in the country. Counterfeit parts of Bajaj Auto vehicles were seized in raids in Mumbai, Pune.

The Police have conducted raids on few automobile spare parts shops in Balaram Street, Mumbai, which were packing & selling counterfeit parts of Bajaj spare parts packed in non-genuine packing.

The offenders have been arrested & FIR has been filed against them under Trademark act. 4000 pieces of Counterfeit parts, fake packing material, worth Rs. 3 lacs were seized from their premises. The shops were raided with the help of EIPR Mumbai & Mumbai Police.

"These criminal actions not only infringe ‘Bajaj brand ‘ affecting brands credibility, but also cheat the customer who gets a substandard part , which when fitted in vehicle will not give proper service, besides possibly creating safety issues. The government also loses precious revenue in terms of taxes," Bajaj said in a statement.

"Bajaj Auto has conducted similar raids in Pune & will conduct such raids in all other cities across the country to protect Bajaj brand & the customer," the statement said.
