Sahil, would it be so simple for you to buy a car in UP & take it into Mumbai? Wouldn't you have to dish out Octroi etc when you enter Mumbai? If it was so easy then by now I'm sure you'd be seeing UP registered Hondas all over the city. I thought it was a lot stricter in Mumbai, had it been the NCR we'd get away with it pretty easily.......

Man, that looks to me like a tall order but GOOD LUCK anyway! If it works you'll save quite a bit. Aren't the Thane guys finicky enough to ask why you got it temp registered in UP and then need permanent registration in Thane? Normally, along with the Temp registration that you'd get in UP, they file the application for the permanent registration as well

Well we could get the car temporary registeration is UP, this will cost you about 1-1.5k. Then you could get it permanently registered in Thane.

Also found out today.

Accord V6 - Insurance off straight away, more can be bargained. Insurance = 64k

Also Prime Honda has a Golden Accord V6 standing with them. The car is a Dec 2005 piece & has done 30kms i.e. delivery mileage. Never got sold evidently because they bought 7 cars in Gold & that's a pretty slow moving colour in the Accord. They wanna get rid of the car asap & not carry it forward to 2007. So they're offering 1.5L off straightaway, I think more can also be baragained from them.

The car has never been sold & the buyer will be the first owner. If anybody is interested PM me & I'll give you the contact person's name & number.

The 12% sales tax is exempted only for the cars that costs under Rs. 10 lacs , so this clearly is not applicable on luxury cars

Its mandatory to register the car in UP and if you dont then you 've to pay the sales tax when you register the car in thane or for that matter any other state . for eg . if i purchase a skoda rider and register it in new delhi than i 'll 've to pay the registeration charges + sales tax . so it wont do any good to me ...
