The 512 GB SD card is priced at Rs 51,990, while the 64 GB micro SD card will be for Rs 9,700
SanDisk said it is working with Indian authorities to clamp down counterfeit products, which is leading to losses on revenue and brand equity.
"Because our brand is so well-recognised and trusted, we pay the premium of lot of counterfeiting on it. These are fake products," SanDisk country manager Rajesh Gupta told on the sidelines of a company event here.
When asked about the revenue losses because of such counterfeiting, Gupta said, "Oh yes, (it is) huge. That is an impact", but also added that this also leads to loss of reputation for the company as fake products do not last.
The company has been raiding such market places and streets along with the police where it finds such counterfeit products being sold, Gupta said, adding that in Mumbai it raided a street outside the iconic CST railway station twice along with Government Railway Police in the last six months.
Apart from the raids, the company has also notified the Customs Department giving names of the four companies who are authorised to import Sandisk products, so that action against the rest becomes easier.
Gupta hinted that sale of some scrap material by the company may have a role to play in this. "There are certain pieces of flash memory, which also comes out of our manufacturing, that we scrap because we feel it is not a sustainable flash," he said.
Apart from raiding, Gupta said the company is also working on building awareness through the social media and conducting programmes for genuine retailers.
