1. Got camber fixed.
2. Got the front bearings changed again.
3. Got the ball joints replaced.
4. Flushed radiator coolant and refilled.

Turbocharger pipe shows a little leakage, but no running problems. So continuing till there is an issue.

Whoa!
Change it. If foreign particles get into the turbo, it will lead to shorter life, and eventually a 45000+ expense for turbo replacement. Never skimp on hose or rubber belt changes. A stitch in time saves Nine

Also besides what TSK mentioned. If the pipe leakage becomes big during an outstation drive the loss of power will be so significant that you will not be able to climb flyovers or get across Ghat section without a very significant strain on the turbo, engine, gearbox and clutch. It is relatively a small expense, get it done with.

You and TSK are correct, its the fat pipe in the right side of the engine. I showed it to a local mechanic and TASS, but both said that it gets black, and there is generally a little leak, and its OK. My local spare parts dealer wanted the fat pipe opened up and given to him, so that he can get it from his dealer, typically 1 day exercise. Does anybody know the part no?

If he is talking about a small bit of leakage at the joint due to how the clamp is fixed then the clamp has to be fixed better else there should be zero Leakage. Just buy the pipe over the counter from the TATA Dealership. Also All TATA outside dealers too would know which pipe you are referring to if you mention the model year. Getting this from ASS is a better idea, the cost should not be more than 15% higher for the original pipe.
