  1. It is possible I do it with all my cars,I buy them in Kolkata,then drive them back to Bangalore,so at a go you save 60-70k(cool cash),the only thing you need to do is once in bangalore you need to do atleast one interstate trips and collect the toll slips,so even if the RTO catches you or something you can easily show the toll slips stating that you are a tourist and blah blah!!
    Btw the road tax for punto active is close to 23k in kolkata,check the exact amount(Dealers tend to inflate that amount):chair:

    In Kolkata the On-road price is close to 6L,so there is not much difference.btw your company is paying for RTO and other charges ,so I think its better to get it from Bangalore only,as it might give you a better resale value in the future compared to WB in the near future if you wish on selling it off soon.

    You should try to get as many accessories as possible,because most of the dealers are not interested in giving off cash discounts.(Reverse parking sensor/camera,seatcover ;these should be worth above 10k)

    Whatever you do weigh out your options,and choose wisely...Happy puntoing!!!:redcar

    In WB lease or no-lease road tax rate is 5% approx for 5 years.

    Thx wolverine_arnab for your wise advice. Buying from Cal is not good as you already mentioned.

    Will go for Bangalore only.

    Car Owners May Not Get Subsidised Diesel + pay “Special Tax” on Diesel Cars

    NEW DELHI: The government is examining proposals to increase excise duty on diesel cars, Parliament was informed today.

    In a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha on whether the government is contemplating to increase excise duty on diesel cars, Minister of State Finance, S S Palanimanickam said: "Representations have been received by the government for increasing excise duty on diesel cars. These are under examination".

    He further said: "The requests have been justified on the ground that diesel cars are more polluting and consume subsidised diesel providing unintended benefit to diesel car users".

    The minister, quoting Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) said the total number of petrol and diesel cars together sold in the domestic market in 2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12 was 15.28 lakh, 19.73 lakh and 20.16 lakh respectively.

    I am confused now.

    I am planning to book Pun10 1.3 Active on next month. (Though my use will be low!)

    So should I proceed with my pal and book Punto or and go back to starting point and start TD of Petrol cars only?

    Pl. advice.


    As of now the plan is to :

    1> get the final quotation for September from dealer
    2> get the calculation and Agreement with Leaseplan
    3> Leaseplan will release the PO to dealer

    All these with 10th Sep,2012.

    * Cancleing is not an option for me.

    Then if these really applied by Govt. then how I will get affected? Can you pl. let me know bit in detail,please ?

    I want delivery within September only But it again depends on the dealer only.

    How much is your usage?
    I don't think it is going to happen soon. If you want to get the diesel then get it, if price increase after that you will get benefited.

    I have booked the Punto 1.3 Active today.

    I just came to know from another portal the following:

    Running Offer for September = Free Insurance & Roadside Cover

    Limited "Absolute Edition" Offer = 50% Free Insurance & Roadside Cover + following Add-ons for Punto 2012:
    1. Satellite Navigation.
    2. Contoured Splash Guard (Mud Flaps).
    3. Carpets.
    4. Door Sills.
    5. Absolute themed Seat Covers.

    Absolute Edition Terms:
    1. Applicable to all trim levels i.e. Active, Dynamic and Emotion.
    2. Will be launched in 3-4 days.
    3. Can be booked right now.
    4. Limited period - for Ganesh Festival (not sure of specifics).
    5. There is NO price change. The difference in Free Insurance offered (50% = approx 10-12k INR) offsets add-ons.

    So should I get there as free?

    I have not booked through KHT.
  9. It doesnt matter,contact your SA regarding this,as you have booked your car on 10th,so what ever new offer comes you are eligible for that..And I think this absolute pack is absolutely worth it..You will be paying 13k approx(half the insurance amt),and its a steal at that price...
