- FIR leads to seizure of 103 boxes which contain 100 MLT candles each, 502 Filter Cartridges, Plastic sticker and machineries.
March 21, 2021: India’s leading healthcare and hygiene firm Eureka Forbes Limited has seized a huge stock of duplicate products worth Rs 4.38 lakhs in Indore. The seizure includes 103 boxes which contain 100 MLT candles each, 502 Filter Cartridges, Plastic sticker and machineries. An FIR has been filed at the Malharganj police station against Mr. Ganesh Sawalikhia & Mr. Anand Jain (Absconded), partners of ‘Shree Naroda Sales’
The manufacturers of the seized products have violated copyrights of EFL by using the Eureka Forbes and ‘Aquaguard’ brand names along with the star emblem and photo of the mother and child. In addition to this, the fraudulent practice has also included copying the signature blue-and-white colour scheme and font style in a clear attempt to mislead consumers.
Eureka Forbes Limited strongly condemns such acts and has taken precautionary steps to protect consumers by introducing 'Health Protect', a safeguard feature built in Aquaguard purifiers. This feature gives consumers advance intimation on periodic maintenance/replacement and usable life of filter cartridges and also ensures that no other grey market parts could be retrofitted into the unit.
