Odisha: Fake army uniform seized from shop in Ganjam – Bollywood Keeda

Berhampur: In a joint operation between Berhampur Police and Military Intelligence, 488 meters of fake army combat uniform has been seized from a textile shop in Berhampur. A case has been registered in this regard at Berhampur Town Police Station. The value of the seized goods is around Rs 1,20,000.

According to official sources, Rambabu Dangi, who worked at the Army AD College in Gopalpur, during his visit to Berhampur, noticed that fake new digital combat uniforms of the Army were being sold at the shop. Investigation revealed that the shop owner had purchased the uniform from Kolkata. Further investigation is underway to confirm the construction site and other people involved.

The new digital pattern combat uniform was unveiled by the Army on January 15, 2022 and the process to replace the old uniform is underway. The Army has obtained Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) for the designs and camouflage patterns for a period of 10 years, which can be extended for another five years. This has been done to prevent unauthorized sellers from manufacturing combat uniforms and selling them in the open market, as it was posing a serious security threat to the Indian Army.

According to the order, the new uniform is to be sold only in canteens run by army units. Due to IPR, the Army now has exclusive rights over the design and can file a complaint against any unauthorized sale of this design.
