sometimes they just forget it to mention, that's all.

Is anyone looking to partner up for Armed Forces Auction?. I am interested in picking up a MPFI Gypsy, looks like all MPFI action is taking place either in Rajasthan or Assam. Please drop me a note, if you are looking for partners.

This trade is virtually monopolised by a particular community called Jaiswals and they operate in a cartel with internal understandings.
It's better to contact them. Buy either direct from a successful bidder or from the kataiwallahs (scrap traders) who are located in Panagarh itself. If you physically just go to Panagarh you can see heaps and heaps of such vehicles that are waiting to be chopped off.
I just saw them on the roadside during my recent trip to Varanasi.
All said and done - I am not too sure if it is good to buy an army used vehicle. Typically they have nothing left in them when they are sold. So unless you know the subject extremely well you might end up making some very expensive mistakes. Monetary expense is not the issue. I dislike emotional expenses more.
Regarding latest pollution norms etc - if the vehicle is not registered in a metropolitan city and if it is registered as a private vehicle it is fine. You will need a proof of residence somewhere outside metropolitan Calcutta (for example Barasat) to get the vehicle registered there.

I am basically from Durgapur and had in past bought Army Auctioned vehicles from Panagarh (including a bunch of Bullets ). I did have trouble registering them but it worked out in the end. But my experience so far has been good, provided you know a good machine shop and know your stuff. On my recent visit to India and Panagarh, I came across a huge lot of 'good for Army auction' category vehicles. The main guy in Panagarh when you are looking for Jeep's and Gypsy's is Deepak Bhalla. His son was around when I visited in November and was quoting 1.6 Lacs for a running MPFI, 1.4 Lacs for a dead one. XDP's were around 80K. The vehicles parked did not interest me, as all were carb, and my quest for Baleno engines is yet to bear fruit. He did have a good body line, running Petrol Jeep of 83/84 make and quoted 80K for it. I do have the contact number, and can provide on request. I was primarily looking to source spares for my Landy project. Not much luck there, I am having the entire requirement sourced from UK, and currently running around custom agents :( .

By the Way, has anyone tried to source Baleno engines from Pakistan?, My Google search always points to Lahore as source.

Cheers

@jeepster

Going through the lot details looks like there quite a number of MM-550s' and Gypsys'. Any clue of any team-bhp member participating in tomorrows auction ? I'm interested in a few lots.

Chengappa.

AFAIK no tbhpian is participating.

if you want to buy the lots then best way to do it is by registering on MSTCI.

you will be able to buy the jeeps/gypsys in various sites across india.

These auctions are held on behalf of the Army Vehicles depot by the Metals and Scrap Trading corporation of India. They have a offices in all the major cities where you can get the auction details. Before you bid, you need to register with them giving originals of your PAN card, Income tax returns, etc, etc which will be returned after the registration.

The bigger problem is finding a good lot of jeeps. A lot will contain jeeps as well as some light and heavy commercial vehicles like Saktiman 4x4 trucks, etc and accident damaged vehicles. So it's pointless to bid for these lots as you will be stuck with a bunch of 7 year old Saktiman trucks and some accident vehicles. Basically you have to be lucky enough to find a lot of only jeeps or atleast jeeps and gypsies that are not accident damaged so you can sell the ones you don't want. Don't worry about accident damaged as the description in the auction details clearly states if the vehicles are accident damaged so you can avoid that lot.

Once you win the bid you have to pay the full bid price and take delivery of the auction in about 30 days.
Apart from this, you could also look out for a serving/retired army personnel. They also do have an option to pick an auction vehicle directly. I'm not sure how tedious the task/paper work would be.

Deep- Could you please pass on MR Bhalla's number? There are quite a lot of Jeep enthusiasts looking out for Kings and XDP's
