MKH: This raises another question for me. Can vehicle manufacturers still manufacture cars that are of BS3? When I initially read news about RX 135 closing down and Maruti 800 closing down, I was thinking like RTO will not register it and also the car maker should stop manufacturing it. Is there any rule that stops car makers from manufacturing BS3? If yes, how come Fiat is still manufacturing the BS3 Palios.

I would always advice that you never buy a car that is being phased out. The offers from the dealers may look tempting but it reflects the actual drop in value of the car. Eventually parts start getting expensive, you start having problems on your insurance renewals and claims over a period of time. Fact that the car is being phased out reflects that the model is well past it's prime and it is time for your head to start ruling your heart.
On the BS-3 registration, adjustments can be made in the RTO. I would not be surprised if the RTO records show this car as BS-4!. Remember the Dec models were registered in Jan reflecting the new year as the date of manufacture. That is why you will see Temp registered vehicles running in Dec!
With respect to Prerana, I remember a very bad experience. I am Banker and we had funded a new Safari. The borrower was in default and when we repossessed the car we found that an old demo car had been sold as a new car! I had then written to the Head-Cars at TATA Motors and was going to take legal recourse. Unfortunately, I got transferred and my successor did not pursue the case as there was some sort of settlement.

The offer that is mentioned here is happening with the knowledge of the company if we look at it .
RX 135 and M800 , were removed in again a phased manner .
All that I am wondering is why FIAT - TATA is not taking an action / why they are not having an inspection kind of thing with all these dealers.
