I am 100% sure, the SUBROS A/C Compressor(Model No. 10PA17C, TATA Part No: 2699 8340 01 09) cost you Rs. 27,477 where DELPHI A/C Compressor cost you Rs. 20,000

But you can buy a reconditioned/new A/C Compressor from TATA around 5k-10k on "EXCHANGE"

But remember, the above price is TATA Price.

I can still help you to buy a BRAND NEW SUBROS A/C Compressor(Model No. 10PA17C, TATA Part No: 2699 8340 01 09) directly from SUBROS for Rs. 18,000.

And note that I too can help you buy a LOCAL Brand (new) 173cc TATA Safari Compressor for Rs. 9000
