I went there today. Got some low quality photos (Only had my 1.3MP cell camera).
The presence was dominated by coach builders and bus-related accessories/parts manufacturers. There was no direct participation from prominent bus manufacturers like Tata, AL, Volvo. Overall, the show is only good for a quick visit.
Pics coming soon.

Busworld India Photos
Got some photos of the buses present. As I mentioned before, the event is dominated by stalls set up by accessories manufactures and other ancillary industry players.
Sorry for the poor pic quality
DC Design presented its bus based on Eicher chassis. It had really good interiors but couldn't take pics as the interiors lit. It had six wide recliner seats followed by a bed in another compartment with attached bathroom, plenty of storage spaces, entertainment systems the works.
JCBL displayed its mobile clinic based on Swaraj Mazda LCV which had facilities for seating six attendants, a bed for patient, provision for medical equipment and a collapsible externally attached tent.
JCBL also displayed a medium sized bus on a Swaraj Mazda chassis. Interiors were good. Some exterior photos
Swaraj displayed its Isuzu rear-engined buses along with a couple of small buses

Coachbuilder Corona presented a sleeper coach powered by a rear placed Cummins engine. It had 32 berths. Looked decent and impressed many showgoers.
The star of the show was Turkey-based TemSA's intercity luxury coach. It had classy interiors and finishing looked better than the Volvos currently on roads. Driver cabin was good and the front seat passengers had 3-point seatbelts.
Coachbuilder Ruby also presented a couple of buses. Looked tacky in front of the competition. Got only one pic. Its front end looked ugly so I didn't even take a pic.
There was a front-engined bus displayed by HMM coachbuilders. I am not finding the pic now. Will post later.
That's all from my side.

I saw those isuzu rear engines buses at A'bad. The engine were more silent than Volvo 9600 ( I saw them too at A'bad visit ).
Can someone give more details about the Isuzu buses ? The cockpit I managed to look at was as good as Volvo and very comfortable.
More pictures of the show would be welcome.
