Default New Mahindra Major

From wat I understand the Mahindra Major (5+1 gearshift) and the improved engine that was launched in 2009 has now been discontinued and the Mahindra Thar TDI is its replacement.

There are a few questions I have and I hoped that team bhp members could help answer it:
1) Is this news indeed true? I may be a little late to jump on the bandwagon of ppl shocked by this news...
2) Is this because the Major is not BS4 compliant
3) If taht is the case can this vehicle be bought ion small towns where emissions are not as much a bummer?
4) What is the ex showroom price of the vehicle (i Know it varies by state but a indicative range would be extremely helpful)
5) Is this the end of the Major or does Mahindra plan to go something about it?

The reason I ask is because i saw and drove the major in Jaisalmer. It was nothing over the top just a short excursion in some sandy patches and at 95 on the highway. The car in mention was a new Major and was plying as a taxi in Jaisalmer. I loved, it is simple, beautiful to look at and well...just works...and am itching to buy one....want to avoiod a second hand.

PLease could someone or manyones shed some light and help me out....

Long story in short....the Mahindra Major is no longer manufactured (since Oct 2010).
