Surprise to see that they are in syllabus.
Which course is it from?
Not exactly in Syllabus, but then it was told tous by our Prof. But we did had one subject on Motor vehicle rules (including section on busses and trucks).

These are taken by the same group who have taken 15 numbers of TML 3118 in April'10 and now they have come back to AL for their next round.
They have more than 150 vehicles plying all around.

Spotted this 1612C on Mysore Road, doing an easy 70 kph with a full load of cement bags. This had the cab design from the EX series.

Wrong again, this is an extremely rare, Tata 3118C EX, with a factory built load body. Really nice catch, as this model is probably the rarest of TML truck models in India. Hopefully the guy even opted for an AC cabin.

Don't think so, the passenger side window is rolled down.

This load is certainly below 25 tonnes. If not the lift axle would not be in the raised position

But I am not sure about the AC option available in EX series.

AC as an option is available on the EX models, though may not be the case with the 3118. As I dont think that engine has an pulley for running an AC compressor. But the 230hp models like the 2523 or 4923 definitely get factory fit AC as an option.

Also, having the window rolled down, is not necessarily mean the lack of an AC.

Yes, the present load is definitely below 25tonned GVW, otherwise the lift axle would automatically be lowered.

I doubt that it is actually a 2214, may be its just that the panel or may be even just the badge of the 2214 has been used.

Any way I am curious what are the independent max axle loads in a 22ton GVW truck, or does the 22 signify something else??
