Check again. There was an article couple of months back in some newspaper on the guidelines of colours of civilian vehicles. And though the camo does look macho, it was also listed there as a prohibited colour/pattern for the non-army vehicles. So better be sure.

Not sure of the owners. These were gypsies that were hired out for day trips into a forest nearby. We used to hire it out when we required it for our work. I think the guys of a local group called "Friends Of Tadoba" will know about these gypsy owners.

6)(i) The registering authority subject to the provisions of the Act,. Shall not register a vehicle
in the State painted in the following colours, namely:
(a)Olive green; and
(b)Disruptive pattern with combination of colours, as used by security forces or para military
forces.
(ii)In case any motor vehicle is found plying in the State in contravention of the provisions of
Clause (i) above or the Rules 50 and 51 of the Central Motor Vehicles rules, 1989, then it shall
be prosecuted and its registration shall be liable for cancellation.
You answered your own question!

A third friend, Msbehave and I just bought this car-- its an out of state registered vehicle and we are in the process of getting it shifted to MS.

Its bought off the owner who completed the Desert Storm this year in the T2 extreme category.

We look forward to posting our off roading pics in the not so distant future.

yeah i had changed to alloys but the terrain i drive in usually has hidden rocks amongst mud and sand and that completely destroys alloy wheels if struck! good ol steel rims u can just beat them back into shape with a hammer!! ofcourse it is 4x4, it would be suicide to go with anything without 4x4 in monsoon.

Thats a neat Gypsy man. I would suggest you to add some good rubber and alloys to make it look mean and real good. BTW did how did you get the new Gypsy? i mean the procedure? how long did you have to wait?

Suzuki Gypsy's are not that difficult to source.
In NCR you can walk into any good dealer and I think that the wait period is about a month and yes its only on special order!!!

I got my Gypsy 15 days after booking in Trivandrum. My choice of colour was blue but white was the only colour available at that time. It cost me 5.7 lakhs on the road.

beautiful pictures
love the way there appears to be a face off between the Dark Green Gyp and the Dark Green Landry.
and the Gypsy, being very light, can do all sorts of things off road that the heavier vehicle like the landry might find tough.
im not saying the Gyp is better or anything like that but it certainly has a clear advantage in some situations because it is so light.

This was near Devikulam.
