You can sell refurbished part in India no restriction but things to be kept in mind it should not be sold as genuine new part under the trademark of registered company(false packing). Same part can be sold by declaring under proper invoice mentioning same it should not be sold under label of new part.

You may do it, but you are suggested to take permission and authentication from the concerned OEM and local governing bodies.

Absolutely, there's no law stopping this.

Just keep in mind that vehicle/engines after a specific period of time, are phased out from roads since they become obsolete and do not match with the lastest emission norms. Only this aspect has to be considered by you.

t is estimated that nearly a hundred end-of-life vehicles (ELVs) are stripped in Pudupet (Chennai) on any given day. It’s not the only one. There are several such informal, unregulated clusters across the country — Kolkata, Pune, Jamshedpur, Indore — which have turned into throbbing hubs for scrap metal and all sorts of recovered and refurbished automobile parts.

In India there is no ELV policy or law and no scrappage infrastructure — vehicle inspection and certification (I&C) networks for fitness testing and dismantling units — in the organised sector. Roadside scrap recyclers deal with the issue in their own unique, often polluting, ways. It is only now the government is waking up to environmental and related issues thrown up by the auto industry, prompted by a citizenry reeling under poor air quality in our cities.

Thus there is no law yet in India to regulate such practices, hence there is illegal impediment on it.

Dear Sir,

You can sell the same and please see the following website.




A screechy car brake may stop you dead, literally.

Chances are, every vehicle that is serviced at an unauthorized service station may end up with one such brake—the screech being a giveaway sign that it’s a low-quality brake that could fail anytime.

Many such service stations are small roadside shops, and most car owners frequenting them get taken in by the fact that the packaging on the screechy brake looks much the same as that on the original.

In India, fake auto parts is a thriving business, with a recent study by industry bodies Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (Siam) and Automotive Component Manufacturers Association of India (Acma) estimating its size at between Rs4,400 crore and Rs6,300 crore. That means fakes account for between 32% and 47% of the industry, by ¬value.

Fake automotive parts were responsible for 66,330 accidents even as long back as 1997-98, according to a study conducted at the time by Acma. These accidents caused 13,180 deaths and injured 65,550 people. At the time, Indians bought 3.8 million vehicles a year, compared with more than 10 million now. There has been no study on the accidents caused by fake parts since, but the association says the number could only have increased.


You may have to face risk with police etc. Think twice before jumping in such business.

Yes you may do the same.

Just make a declaration that the same happens to be a refurbished item.
