Selling, dealing, manufacturing, or keeping on display for sale and packaging, trade dress or product infringing the Trade mark of any Proprietor is an offence and you can be sued by the proprietor of the registered TM. Any reproduction or second copy sale is legal only with due permission of the TM Proprietor.

(assuming you are in India and asking from a Indian legal standpoint)
There is no legal way to sell a first copy.
Any kind of copy being sold either online or offline is not legal.
Mostly, design of the product, logo, bran name, etc. are trademark protected.
In case you are talking about selling defective products, it has different rules & regulations.
