30 Second Window:

- But what most people don’t know about Gaffar Market is that it’s extremely popular by its street name, Grey Market. There are a few peddlars & shops here that sell China made good at throwaway prices if you know how to bargain!
Now, let’s take a look at what all you can buy here & why Gaffar is a Delhiites favourite spot for bargaining!
I. Cheap Solutions to Tech
Gaffar is one of those few markets in Delhi that has a thousand options to choose from when it comes Tech solutions. And we odon’t just mean cheap pieces of tech, the real deal starts when you buy/sell mobile phones here. Shop owners here know that selling cheap is their USP, so you can easily find an Apple phone here for as low as ₹10,000 or less. Don’t be a fool, the tech products these guys sell, if not first hand, have only a 1 year guarantee. However, if you must buy a first hand product, we suggest you check out some of the bigger stores here, as they also sell goods at fairly discounted prices! You can hit Kalra Electronics if you want to buy first hand good at cheap rates! Besides, Gaffar Market in its entirety is a veritable ocean of humanity selling good like there’s no tomorrow!
II. Always Ahead of Time
The great part about Gaffar Market is that there are a thousand shops here that sell imported ‘maal’. With no excuse for where it comes from & how it got here prior to the launch by the respective company, you can find PlayStation(s), Games, Sony TVs etc here! In fact, if sources are to be believed, some of the shops in Gaffar were selling PS3 way before it got released here in India! Always ahead of time? We think so! Of course, there are also shops here that can easily order, reorder & never ask a single question like why, how & when. You have got to buy goods here as quickly as they arrive, so don’t waste your time dreaming about it!
III. No Bill, No Cry
Shop owners here are just as smart as us, huh! They know the value of a bill and how one can circumvent it to gain the maximum profits. So, the next time you head to Gaffar Market, make sure that if you don’t care about the warrantee or guarantee, then it would be ebst if you stay shush about the bill! No bill can easily get you a product – tech, TV, clothes, shoes.. everything – at a price maybe less than 50% of the actual cost! So, really this market is the epitome of No Bill, No Cry! Besides, what you must understand here is that a no to the bill also means the shop isn’t liable to replace the product! So, shop at your own risk!
IV. Cheap China Ware
Gaffar Market is a hot favourite with students & people who love buying clothes at throwaway prices! Gaffar has hundreds of shops selling entire wardrobes from clothes to shoes to garments etc. While most of the clothing material like jackets, shirts, sweaters & shoes come from China, garments are imported from Thailand. Ps. the shop keepers here are staunch believers of the fact that some of their goods surpass the quality of international brands! That can be true considering most of our clothes & accessories are anyway made in South-East Asia! You can buy shoes, clothes & accessories for as low as ₹800!
