How to Tell If Your PS5 India Unit Is Genuine With Warranty
The PlayStation 5 is out now in India and it’s as good a time as any to give you an idea of what to expect. Now while some may argue that it’s pointless to tell you what’s in the box as that’s been been covered ad nauseam since the PS5 hit the shelves internationally late last year, the official PS5 Indian version has some differences that could be of importance to you such as warranty that’s only valid on genuine product bought in India.
Last Friday, Sony India sent us a PS5 unit to check out. Here’s everything that’s in the box so you can tell that the PS5 you get is genuine and eligible for warranty in India.

- DualSense controller
- Power cable
- HDMI cable

PS5 India Unit – How to Tell If Your PS5 Is Genuine
- Import sticker: each official PS5 sold in India ships with an import sticker on the box. This includes information like the import date, price, manufacturer name and importer. This is what it looks like on our PS5 box.
- PS5 BIS sticker: every PS5 sold in India officially has a BIS sticker on the back of the console. BIS is India’s mandatory certification process for electronics. The idea is to check the flood of low-grade products flooding India, and set a minimum standard of quality. This means the console has been tested to ensure compatibility with Indian standards. This is what it looks like on the PS5.
- BIS sticker on PS5 power adapter: much like the BIS sticker at the back of the console, there’s one on the adapter as well indicating that it has been tested for Indian standards too.
- Warranty card: similar to the PS4, the PS5 ships with a blue and yellow warranty card that includes information like the model name, serial number, and validity date. While our console shipped without a dealer stamp, yours should have one if you bought it offline. If you bought your PS5 online and it does not have a dealer stamp, don’t worry though. Your warranty is still valid as the bill you got it with is proof enough according to Sony.
