Ill effects of Smuggling & Counterfeiting on the Country and the Role of Youth in Making India Free of Illicit Trade
Over the years, FICCI CASCADE is working on creating awareness on tackling the problem of smuggling and counterfeiting which is a serious menace to public health and safety. Along with policy makers, industry, enforcement officials and media, we have also been working closely with the youth in our fight to address this issue through various interschool and intercollege competitions and programmes.
FICCI CASCADE believes that it is important to bring the youth onboard the awareness campaign and through them influence the society as a whole. It will help in empowering and strengthening them to act for national development and will also help in shaping the future of our country in a brighter and more prosperous manner.

The growing network of illicit trade is a grave oncern as it endangers lives of the consumers. Inadequate legal framework and lack of consumer awareness are shaping the dynamics of illicit trade. Imparting knowledge to the consumer on the importance of promoting genuine goods in the country can go a long way to tackle this menace. Therefore, significant policy reforms and strategies should be enhanced to fight against the growing hazards of counterfeiting and smuggling with the goal of keeping consumer safe.
