I think they do have to buy insurance and pay taxes for non defense purchases.

Came across this on the Suzukifan website. This article is dated 11/6/2011. This is what it says:

According to Suzuki spokesperson in Brazil say that the new Jimny will be made in December 2012 and the first national units to hit stores in early 2013.We also expect that the full model change Jimny should debut sometime in 2012 and will heading to European market at that year. India will be a manufactoring base too but India market have to wait until 2013.
Current Brazilian Jimmy are import from Japan. The model has 1.3 16V petrol engine of 85 hp and 5-speed manual transmission with three drive modes: 4 x2, 44 and 4x4L.The list of standard features includes air conditioning, power steering and radio / CD player.
The Jimny is currently the oldest car of the Suzuki line. It was launched 40 years ago and has evolved over time. According to the brand, has sold more 2.4 million units of the car in 188 countries. In Brazil, the vehicle was offered from 1998 to 2003 and returned to the market in 2008.

Another chapter in the "Mystery of the Indian Jimny"?

According to the FaceBook page on Jimny, it will be launched today at 7PM. So... watch out!

PS:According to reliable sources, Jimny will not be coming to India. Maruti was hoping to replace Gypsy with Jimny. However, the biggest customer of Gypsy, the Indian Army wants to stick with Gypsy. So Jimny remains a dream for all of us.

so its safe to buy ex army gypsy and restore it to its glory and have fun in OTRs!

Jimny is too small to be launched in a 4 door version, it will only sell if it comes fitted with a DIESEL engine!

forget indian army, they are NOT going to continue with the Gypsy as they have totally new 4x4 vehicle coming in!

I too make that mistake sometimes. The Thanks icon should be located on the left hand side, IMO.
