One month, not three!

Thanks for the update. Actually during my road trip to Hyderabad in 2014, I faced harassment at the hands of traffic cops due to outstation vehicle. At that time the cop verbally told me that as per rule you can only drive for three months in AP with outstation registration number, after that you have to re register your vehicle in AP, although I had arrived in Hyderabad only two days ago. As I had no idea regarding the rule, so I had no option other than to believe him. Nonetheless this rule is nothing less than absolute harassment for the outsiders.

Default Re: ARTICLE: The real cost of car ownership

This article got me thinking as to what is true cost of ownership and i quickly did some back of the envelope calculations for one of our cars...

Am i doing this right ?

MODEL YEAR: 3/2013

LOCATION: BLR

MODEL: VENTO TDi HIGHLINE

TOTAL COST INCLUDING ALL STATUTORY LEVIES: Rs. 12,75,000/- (verified)

TOTAL ON INSURANCE: Rs. 34,857 (verified)

TOTAL ON SERVICE/MAINTENANCE: Rs. 25,000 (rounded off) (verified)

FUEL: On average Rs. 2500 x 31 months = Rs. 77,500

Approximate PRESENT MARKET VALUE as per Indian Blue Book = Rs. 7,75,000/-

DEPRECIATION: Rs. 5,00,000/-

ACCESSORIES: Rs. 0/-

TOLLS/PARKING: Rs. 5000/- (not verified)

KMS DRIVEN AS OF DATE: 33,100


TOTAL INCLUDING DEPRECIATION: 5,00,000 + 77,500 + 25,000 + 34,857 + 5,000

Rs. 6,42,357 divided by 33,100 kms driven till date

We get approximately Rs. 19.41 per km.


DISCLAMIER: Dont flame me, this is in no way 100% accurate but just a rough idea jotted down on a scrap of paper in 5 mins.
