Gaffar Market: The Biggest Second Hand Market of India
Gaffar Market in Karol Bagh, Delhi is known for hosting the biggest second hand mobile and accessories market of India. Apart from second hand mobile gadgets, you can also find new electronic items from around the world in this market. It was not always a destination for second hand items. Actually, this market was previously acclaimed for making available almost all imported items like electronics, crockery, apparels and toys, among others. And, most important point was the fact that the price of these imported items used to be far much less than the official price.
You have just seen Samsung and Apple launching their new gadgets. You are ready to invest money to get those latest iPhone and Samsang Galaxy. However, while launching products, these companies have also announced that they will officially launch them in India after few months. What to do now? Don’t worry. Wait for one week and drive towards Gaffar Market. There is quite a high probability that you will find those products available at exactly the same, or even lower, price.
Destination for Mobile Shopping
If you will go to Gaffar Market, you will notice hundreds of small stores keeping second hand and brand new mobile handsets. Actually, there is no alternative if you want to get second hand mobile sets. It was also said that Gaffar Market sells stolen mobile phones. Delhi Police was criticized for allowing this grey market. Later, an order was passed through which anyone selling a used mobile phone in Gaffar Market needs to provide identity proof. Delhi Police can see any used phone available at any store and check about the origin of the phone with the attached identity proof.
Not only used and second hand mobile phones and tablets, this market is also a perfect destination to get your malfunctioning gadgets corrected. There are many quality service centers available at Gaffar Market.
You need Bargaining Prowess to Shop There
If you are going to Gaffar Market to buy a used phone, one of the main points you need to remember is the bargaining power. First ask about the price of a particular phone on many shops. Then select a shop and start bargaining. Start with less than half of the price told by the shopkeeper. You must have a fair idea about the possible price of a particular handset.
You should also not expect any guarantee. If you leave the shop after getting the phone, you will not get a chance to return the phone (after you find something malfunctioning). Hence, it is required to cross check all functions of the phone.
How Can You Reach to Gaffar Market
If you are using Delhi Metro, get down at the Karol Bagh Metro Station. Outside the station, you will find many Rickshaws. Ask one to take you there. They will charge you Rs. 20.
