Mumbai: Tata Steel officials, with the help of the Maharashtra Police, conducted a raid on a retail outlet named ‘A ONE STEEL TRADERS’ in the Vasai area of Palghar district in Maharashtra wherein counterfeit ‘Tata Wiron’ products were being sold. The counterfeit barbed wire was being sold with photocopied labels of Tata Wiron attached to it. The retailer was procuring the goods from manufacturers located in a nearby district and was attaching the photocopied labels at his outlet.
