Good evening,

Section 479 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) talks about property mark. A property mark refers to a mark made by an individual on any MOVABLE property, thereby denoting that the property belongs to that individual. Such a mark states claims of ownership to the property. Movable property such as cases, goods, packages containing any goods and so. Section 481 of IPC talks about what a false property mark means. In simple terms, if any individual marks any movable property with their mark, but in actuality, it isn't their property, that mark will be considered false property mark. Section 482 of IPC talks about the punishment for a false property mark, and it can be a fine, or imprisonment, or both.

 Hope this helped!
