Thanks for the details for people to find out more about it.

One important thing which you missed is that there is an excise duty exemption given by central government.

The requisite notifications and forms are here, http://dhi.nic.in/UserView/index?mid=2408 . You need to do the following steps.

1. Get medical certificates
2. Book the car with the dealer
3. Get a letter from the car dealer that they can provide a car to you which you can drive. (with modifications)
4. A writing from you, that you have not availed this concession since last 5 years and will not dispose off your car in next 5 years.
5. Send this letter with request of concession on excise duty to the Min of Heavy Industries office in New Delhi.
6. Government will take some time, max time is around 1.5 months.
7. Once your application is approved, a letter will come to your address (and to dealer, I am not sure of this).
8. You can show the same to the dealer and get the concession on excise duty.

The excise duty applicable for PwD is 8% flat across all cars, as compared to 16% Or 24% for bigger cars. Lower excise duty means lower cost and lower Insurance cost too.

So there are three levels for benefits
1. Excise concession from central government (flat rate of 8%)
2. Road tax exemption from State government RTO. (fully exempted)
3. Insurance concession of 50% from State Insurers like Oriental etc.
