The drain on businesses and the global economy from counterfeit and smuggled goods is of great concern worldwide and are virtually impacting every sector. India is no exception and there are significant impacts of widespread smuggling and counterfeiting in the country. It not only poses health and safety risks for consumers but it also has negative impact on the economic growth of the nation as it reduces job growth and lowers tax collections for the government. Study also suggests that money earned from such products is used for funding terrorist organisations thereby affecting the national security. Consumer sensitization is considered as an important catalyst to curb this menace. With this objective, FICCI CASCADE is organising a candle light congregation to initiate the pledge to take proactive actions and fight counterfeiting and smuggling.
