Bring it to Hyd, I'll get the bumper fixed + Painted partially in less than 2 K.
Agree with Akshay4384, its not a big issue, the light is just misaligned and bumper can be easily dented and painted and minor touch up to hood will get it back to normal shape. It should not cost more than 3-3.5K if done outside the FASS, given that is pearl white color, otherwise its like 2.5 - 3k cost work.
3 days ago only a friend of mine had similar issue, infact his bumper clips also broke down, thus a screw was used, which got hidden is inside the putty.
Also do checkout if there was any impact on radiator and other parts inside. And it would not take more than 24hrs to get this fixed
Check if there is damage to intercooler or AC radiator , I doubt they can get damaged with impact you have described but still they are hidden things can only be known once you open the bumper.
Does your AC works normally?
Is there any coolant leakage on the floor?
Does you car run same as before the mishap?
Also check the fog light plastic assembly
Answers to above question will give clue on damage but there is no shortcut with out removing the damaged bumper.
Bumper + Grills + Fog Lamp fixing + Chrome damage(iff) = 12K INR .
and other bonnet works 3K INR.
Conclusion was from FASS/TASS point of view.

Chennai to Hyd might be too costly,but yes one has a reason to drive.
FASS,will only offer replacement,so your figures are correct.
But if one drives to aftersales and pays 15K to get this fixed,then no words.
Hence better to get an insurance claim,atleast will get something new.
Rest upto thread owner.
Check the radiators and internal as mentioned above and Rest is all is fixable easily outside on any denting / bumper repair shop
If would not be logical to go for insurance claim for amount less that 10K, given that it would automatically mean wiping of NCB for current year and lesser NCB for upcoming years, which in total would mean more than 15-20k loss.
if i keep changing the insurance company then ?
NCB depends on the number of claim free years you have had. If you change the insurer, the NCB remains the same.
