Default Can Anyone Tell me how to Import a USED car to INDIA?

Hi Everyone,

I am a NRI, Software Pro. working in Bahrain, i have a Honda CIVIC, and i would like to take her to INDIA with me, is there any procedures to import used cars to INDIA?, I heard that there is a OCTROY / TAX of 120% of the real market value of the car in INDIA!, is it true?

If anyone have IDEA or knows procedures to how the things done, please reply me, am eagerly waiting!,

thanx in advance.....

Sell it and buy a new one in India. Would be a lot less hassle. If it were a high end car it was worth it but definitely not for a civic. Import duty is 120% plus there's road tax, registration, bribes to get it out. Simply not worth it.

I know of these these guys can help you out with pretty much everything you would need. They even have a finance option available. I don't know if you have already heard of them. Here is the link:

Aston Martin, Landcruiser, Lexus, Ferrari, Hummer - Magus Cars


Hope this helps.

I doubt the Nissan dealers will be able to help you get one. They dont even help people get in GTRs.

An independent well known dealer like the one mentioned above is probably a good choice.

Default Re: Supercars & Imports : Delhi

So, I don't know where to post this,
moderators, please move my post if required.

My heart is sold an Ford mustang from the day i learnt driving,
there is a listing on ebay at just 12k $.


Can anyone please tell me what is the procedure of importing a used car in india from USA, and what are the steps i have to take.

My budget is around 1 million, can't shell out more,
so if it can be imported below this budget,
i will give advice giving members a free test drive
