Hello Everyone.

I have a quick question, I have been hearing about Customs Officials at Mumbai and Delhi International Airport having a sort of Garage sale of the confiscated and lost & Found articles at the Arrival terminal.

Not really sure about the prices and exact location since I have never been able to locate it. But I hear its somewhere after the Baggage screening at the arrival.

Any one got any experience with this ? Please share.

Thanks.
Traveller_RJD.

I think I may have heard of this in India, Govt. auctions if I remember. There used to be a craze many years ago to bid on used Willys Jeeps and refurbish them.

Here in the US we have this:

In 1978, the Owens incorporated the company and watched it prosper as one of the great 'hidden' bargain centers for savvy shoppers.....

Also city police departments, other law enforcement agencies,... all have auctions of seized/confiscated items and for some people it's a way of making money.
