A new vehicle takes anywhere between 6-8 months after launch to be introduced to CSD.

Not always though. A new car can be available within month or so as it happened with Fiat Linea. It came within 2 months (approx). So i would suggest to get in touch with CSD dealer and see if Manza is there or not.

Guys can anyone tell me if the option to get a Car thru CSD is there only for Commisionsed Officers in service/retired?

My Dad was a Chief Petty Officer (Non-Commissioned Officer). Iam planning to get a car thru my moms widow card. Is it allowed for all exservicemen? Any limits or criteria?

Sam it is allowed for PBOR ( Personnel below officer rank) to get a car through Csd but there is some catch to it like a particular segment or something am not sure on this but if you let me know which car you plan too buy i will check with an agent in delhi and let you know if its Allowed or not.

I found this news item Now, jawans can buy cars from CSD – Sulekha News

Best thing will be to contact some ex-servicemen organisation in your area and check with them. They will know all current regulations.

Thanks a ton. I have not finalized the model. In fact just selected a lot - a wild range in fact!

1) Alto, i10 Kappa (Just thinking of taking a car for just moms/wife use)

2) Swift Petrol/Diesel, Dzire Petrol, i20 Petrol, Ikon TDCi (why not take a bigger family car which only i might drive!)

So I guess not Ikon TDCi is out of the equation since its above 1300c.

Iam from Cochin.

just check www.csdindia.gov.in and check against AFD (against firm demand) items for the prices. Most items seem to be listed there with their special CSD price

Not sure why you want to buy it in Chennai since if you live in Bangalore you will anyway have to register it here and pay lifetime tax etc here.

Any car can be driven anywhere as far as its engine is concerned, but it is illegal to drive around without proper registration, RC Book, Insurance papers and number plates. You cant be driving between cities using a FOR REGISTRATION board.

Only when the vehicle gets registered will you get an RC Book and the proper Insurance documentation - until it is registered all you get is a cover note from the Insurance company.

Dont do anything which can be considered by the authorities to be "outside the law" or "on the fringe of the law" - it is not worth it and it is certainly not endorsed by the TBHP rules/ bye-laws.

Plus, it is not clear if you are a serving/retired officer or a family member.

Check on the eligibility norms before you buy, because this privilege is normally reserved only for serving/retired members of the Armed Forces and even then, they cannot buy a new car every year - the allowed frequency is about once every 5 years as far as I know.

Shankar,

Chennai CSD is one of the cheapest to buy cars, that's probably the reason why he wants to buy it from there.

He can drive on a temporary registration & get the permanent registration done in Bangalore.

I understand, but for registration in Bangalore RTO he will still have to go through the Road Tax and Insurance part - Road Tax (LTT) in Bangalore is amongst the most expensive in the country.

If he is driving the vehicle between Chennai and Bangalore on Temp Regn, better to make sure if the Insurance cover note actually covers the vehicle at the time of transit, while it is being driven on the highway. (Im not sure, that is why Im raising this point.)
