2) Sarojini Nagar Market:

The market also gets rejected export clothing, which include some of the most reputed brands as well. Zara, Mango, M&S you name it and they have it!
The quality of the products will not be very good but the products are so affordable that you will not mind buying them. PS check the clothes for holes, a few snagged ends and stuff. It is basically quantity shopping.
