Porur, bang opposite to Gokul Santol factory has an IOC COCO outlet. Do a full tank on car (I guess there's some min amount, not sure how much) & get a free Nitrogen gas topped up/filled.

The IBP petrol bunk at ullagaram (oil Mill stop) has nitrogen facility. The fill up and top up is free if you are filling Rs.500 worth of premium fuel / a full tank of ordinary fuel.

Default Nitrogen for 10Rs. Never got it free!

First Nitrogen fill was at MSM ekkattuthangal, was included in the bill (Rs: 200), I asked why did you fill Nitrogen, I never asked for this, Immediately, the bill was discounted for this amount. Not sure if they really filled it.

Did top-up on Taramani Link Road "Ramesh Tyres" Bridgestone dealers (10 x 4 = 40Rs) opp Hot Chips.

Another one at Petrol Bunk (not sure if it is IOC/HP etc) near to Medavakkam Jn (one on the left side just before reaching the Junction from Pallikarnai side) guy charged me 40Rs, even though my front left tyre had the correct pressure (he says his BOSS keeps the count of how many tyre fill/checks he makes - Poor boss) Nitrogen was not offered free here even if you order one truck load of Fuel.

All, be watchful when filling N2 at petrol pumps. I and my colleague went to an IOC bunk on the OMR to top up Nitrogen.

We somehow noticed that the units he had set was in kg/cm2 instead of psi

We educated the guy who was filling and made him change it. He also said that that was how he had been filling for quite some time for many cars

I get it for free in a HP bunk in mogappair. Initially they used to insist on a full tank top up, now it is totally free.

How are you sure that you're actually getting 99% pure Nitrogen?
And not 74% Nitrogen.
