The name is quite appropriate "Jugaad"! And they are a pain on the highways around here since their top speed is about 30kmph or so, quite a nuisance they create! Will try & post pics of it if possible.
Actually there are 2 versions
1. 3 wheeled version with enfield engine, actually enfield front half pulling a body called the Bhoond(Wasp)
2. The Maruta, which is a diesel water pump mated to a gearbox, this is four wheeled version. Maruta is getting more popular because diesel pump sets can be subsidised by showing them for agricultural use

Ahh didn't know that. The only version sold here is the Jugaad/Maruta which is built in Meerut. I think it costs around 25k not sure though.

For all those wondering about these contraptions, here is what they look like:
