Besides, illicit trade causes significant threats to the health, safety and security of the citizens, as well as adds to costs on governance, environment and biodiversity. Problem of illicit trade is serious which needs to be dealt with sincere commitment leading to result- oriented effective steps addressing the challenge of counterfeiting and smuggling. In pursuance of the agenda, FICCI CASCADE has constituted a think tank which will advise, direct and provide necessary inputs in formulating a strong & effective course of action to eliminate the menace of illicit trade.
