    I purchase regularly from eBay, and they are dependable and never been a problem. Also the stylus is very similar to the DIY capacitive stylus explained by MakeUseOf sometime back. //www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-build-your-own-tablet-stylus/

      Also checkout this link. It is the search result for stylus for capacitive screens at Ebay India done by me. Gives a huge range of options.

      Thanks for your effort

      Sure they would work? I read that stylus for capacitative screen are different with conduction through metal wire inside

      The models you mentioned contain wire inside for conducting?

      They do mention for capacitive touch, isn't it? So, we probably have to go at face value of it as beyond that we both are in the same boat brother. Buy one of the cheaper one which says Rs. 35 + Rs. 60 handling charges, as even if it doesn't work, you waster less than Rs. 100. But somehow I feel the first link in the original post should word as it look and seems very similar to the MakeUseOf DIY stencil that I mentioned and provided you the link to.

      Rajaa Yes they mention capacitative

      I learnt that even within capacitative stylii there are sub-criteriae for specific phone models to be met in order for them to work with the hardware

      Thanks for ebay links. Very relevant and reasonably priced

      You mentioned that you purchased from ebay. How has your experience been? How come so low prices?

      For eg., the flip cover for Canvas 2 is in store for Rs.350 and even Rs.750 of Micromax make

      But flip cover charges in ebay is greater than ten times lesser? Is it really so cheap and same product?

      Do they sell second-hand?

      Please clarify

      Regarding the pricing, you will find all sorts of them on eBay, some costlier than retail and some cheaper than retail. I usually do very good search to get the best prices. I guess they are cheaper from the sellers in those cases, as they are directly either from the manufacturers, wholesalers or direct importers, so you save on the huges margins made by the retail stores, who may actually be sourcing from these guys. I brought and very good USB extension cable at almost half the price from eBay than what retail store were asking, and that too much better quality and product. If you are careful and do all the checks, you can get very good deals at eBay. You will even find that the same product is priced hugely different by different sellers, so very cheap good deals, some overly priced, as it also depends on what is the margin the seller wants to make and what is the discount benefits he what to pass on to the buyer. Some like to operate at lower price but try to achieve higher sales figure due to that. :D Economics and market dynamics, my dear friend. :D
