    Did you find any alternative? I have to replace before monsoon sets in and moreover the OEM is costly and not able to find the wiper in reputable brand.
    If you have found please share me the Link to purchase or brand and model details to look in the market.

    I sourced these refills from aliexpress, Search for wiper refills for "VALEO" type wiper blades. I got 16" and 26" , they come in pair each and had to be seperated. Installation videos available on YouTube. I installed them, rubber feels soft for now and does the job ok. Only usage in monsoon will tell its true story. I hope they are available on Amazon too.

    For Rear wiper , I swapped the rubber from a Bosch 12" wiper blade. little patience is needed while pulling out the rubber from Bosch wiper and a little piece of the rubber needs to be cut off for a better fitment in Puntos' rear wiper blade.

    Stock wipers are best IMO. Aftermarkets may need replacement in a year or so, where stock wipes best (yet to see any wiper brand that wipes like stock) & it last atleast 2 years or so. Its one on the same thing, only you pay the price upfront in stock replacement.
    Choice is yours.
