'E-commerce websites like Snapdeal, Flipkart and Amazon.in are not authorised Lenovo resellers. We encourage you to check your warranty entitlements when you buy from these websites,' Lenovo said in the advisory on its website.

In a bid to woo customers, e-commerce companies offer heavy discounts on products, which are often below prices offered in the offline market.

When contacted, Snapdeal said it takes 'utmost care' to list products only by those sellers who have the necessary authorisation to sell these products.

'Customers can rest assured that all the products including Lenovo and Toshiba products which are available on Snapdeal.com are genuine and eligible for warranty,' a Snapdeal spokesperson said.

According to an Amazon India spokesperson, sellers are 'contractually obligated to list genuine products' with manufacturer warranty. This applies to all brands, it added.
