Most likely insurance should take care of it - it seems to be a repeat of 2005. MASS must have been flooded (pun intended) by flood affected vehicles.

Depending upon what all needs to be changed, you may find the time to get the work done from a Mumbai MASS might take more time. However on the plus side they should be able to do a very good job of it as they have 2005 experience to refer to.

Rest it will be like any other MASS.

If you cannot wait or cannot leave the car here, check with the MASS manager to see if the car can be towed away to any convenient location outside. Towing will be paid by you in this case. Not recommended as there is a lot of hassle involved.

Thanks for sharing your story with us here.

Thank You, Sir! Your words are very kind and very encouraging!

I have realized that, today, technology is such that every car is a good car which can last long (some more than others). Tata Nano is no exception. The engineers and designers at Tata have outdone themselves with this product. However, only a shift in mentality will bring about the true potential of the product. What I mean is that if Tata takes this basic product and (without changes to the basic design) turns it into a world class product with improved quality, safety and engine, it will sell in millions like the Corolla and give India a good name in Auto Tech department.

No, thank you for being brave and considerate towards in need. People like you make this world a better place . And I agree to what Tata can potentially do to make Nano a world class product. It already has the right combination just a few corrections and it can do wonders for them.

A quick update on my case. The car is still parked at Basement of Equinox, Kurla.
Apparently there is no space in workshop at Autovista, Kalina for the vehicle to be towed there. I have been advised by Mr. Shiraj , the bodyshop manager over phone, to bring the vehicle only by Wednesday. So, shall try again on Wednesday to arrange the towing guy for getting the vehicle to workshop.

Another spell of heavy rains starting last evening and continuing even now. This time authorities issued adequate warnings in time. All schools are closed and most offices are shut. Some people are having options to work from home. Most people seem to be staying put at home. Funny thing is that rains have reduced in intensity for now and almost all the roads in GMaps is showing "green".

Real irony to the subject of the thread.

Happened to see this article and the video. Worth a share. Thought the engine driver was really reckless.

I guess, while passing the station at MPS, the loco pilot did not expect it. If you notice, the water logging is much inside the platform. He then slowed the train down.
