You can't legally import it, AFAIK, because it's LHD.

LHD is left-hand drive. LHD imports are not allowed post-1999 or some such date. Older LHDs continue to exist in India, but you cannot legally import one now.

Though I hear rumours on and off that if you get them in under TR, it is allowed. Maybe someone can clarify this. TR= transfer of residence.

Dont think it is allowed even under TR.

Do a search here, we have discussed it before. One such thread: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ng-car-uk.html (Importing a car from the UK?)

Unfortunately you cannot import Left hand drives into the country now.

Getting the car down isnt impossible, just break the car down into several pieces and reassemble it once it arrives but registering the car which is a LHD is difficult unless you get it registered at some Bihar/Haryana RTO(anything is possible there) and get yourself a national number plate and registration papers(dont exactly know how that works thou)!!!

Yeah. Just get it converted to RHD and import it.
If thru TR, the vehicle should be owned by U for atleast 6 months.
