IMHO, AT + better paint (somehow, i feel that Indica is literally loosing its sheen from the initial launch) + differentiate taxi and private vehicles on basis of colour + certainty at dealer end about colour availability will make indicas move faster.

Thank goodness someone else noticed too!

It is strange, TATA Indicas all have this dull paint look, either straight from the factory or soon after, whereas Hyundai Santro tends to look really good at least when new, and seem to retain that sheen for longer.

Without details, I can only speculate that TATA are cutting costs either in the painting process, or, just have inferior equipent and suppliers.
