Thanks for the useful guide to select the appropriate seller on! This will be very clear to those who are confused between authorised and non authorised sellers. Please do not encourage the sellers who take advantage of the demand for Mi products and sell it for more than the MRP value. BE AWARE! Thanks for the share Gagzz.

why the official sellers of miband 2 are listing the MRP as Rs 2499 when the product was launched at Rs1999. If the actual MRP is the latter then the sellers on Amazon are misleading the customers to believe that they are getting at 20% discount.

Hey there.
They aren't really misguiding. But there's a logical methodology behind the fact.
Actually, the real MRP of the product is Rs.2500 and they are selling it for Rr.2000.
Most Online Retailers and companies do the same in order to cost-cutting the extra taxes.
