If the trust proves transparently, how this thing is going to work bothways(car user & trust), it might show if its genuine. Since, they don't show it, its a complete fraud.

Anyone is welcome to the trust's office in mumbai and have meeting with their Sales manager for greater details on this, that' what they claimed on the phone.

The amount of transparency would only be revealed during a one on one meeting with this guy.

what I think here is that The company would be providing the car to them for a lesser price. so taking 8.50 as the base isnt a good idea.

By the way, does any of the dealers in India provide leasing options? Seems to be a good idea since it saves us the trouble of reselling the cars, some with bad resale.

Enquired abt it once, then ditched when they said BMW 3-series costs 7500 bucks per day. This was a short-term hire objective (4 days).

my dad has an accord which is from lease plan india.it involves no downpayment.monthly emis.after 3 yrs you can decide to keep the car or return it.if you want to return it,you have to pay the remaining book value amount.not the market value amount.
for eg.if the accord costs 16l and say after 3 yrs the book value is 12l and the market value is 10l).you end up paying 12l + 3x12 emi's.so it obviously works out more expensive than buying a car through a loan.the good part is servicing,maintenance is all done by leaseplan.
dont know too much about this in detail so experts if you can work out some calculations and explain the members what im trying to say in numbers,it'll be great.

Default Advice needed on City Limousines

Dear All,

Advice needed in case any one has performed a deal with City Limousines - as they say that if a person deals with us by depositing 2.5 lacs we would give him PDC monthly of 17000 rs for 5 years - that comes out to be 10.2 lacs after 5 years-this is what i have heard.
I want to know how much feasible do you all think & has anyone on the forum performed a deal with city limousines or any other similar agency.

Moderator: Kindly move it to any relevant forum in case this is not the right one, didnít know which forum to post on!!!

Thanks alot for your help.
Thanks.

Anupam, I have merged your thread with an existing one. Sounds like a scam if I ever saw one. Look at what the cops have to say here

Any finance from a non-bank source? 100% assured that you are NOT the owner. The owner as per law it is the financier. Even if you are registered owner. (That is why they have the rights to repossess the vehicle - the bank, OTOH, is only has a hypothecation against the vehicle, therefore cannot simply repossess it).

Some financiers insist that the finance company is the regd. owner as per the papers.

I do not see how this company / trust is any different. I cannot call them frauds on that grounds.

Ouch!!! Was replying to the earlier posts - not anupam00's post!!!

I am a bit confused about the words in bold - X pays Y 2.5 lakh and y repays 17,000/- permonth for 5 years????

Edit 2:- If it is to be understood the way I have, they need a NBFC (Non-banking finance company) license from the RBI to operate. Ask the RBI - I believe an email would be of help.

Don't buy a car, lease it. It's cheaper

was just reading this. Hertz it seems is doing car leasing in India.

LeasePlan India Website

this according to the article is the largest leasing company in India so far.

Devarshi : Your post is probably relevant in the leasing thread. This thread is discussing the con jobs who propose leasing out your car.

I thought it would help those looking to lease and trying to stay away from Scamming parties as many are looking at options. But please do the needful.
