NEW DELHI : Sale of illicit consumer goods such as mobile phones, fast moving consumer products, packaged food, tobacco products and liquor stood at 2.6 trillion in 2019-20, according to a report by industry body Ficci.

The FMCG industry including household and personal care goods, and packaged foods together accounted for three-fourth of the total value of illicit goods sold in the five key industries, Ficci’s Committee Against Smuggling and Counterfeiting Activities Destroying the Economy (CASCADE) said in its report released Thursday.
