Ask him to search for a welding shop,that will be the cheapest and easiest option.

Definitely try and locate a local garage, you will get no help from the A** for repairing this - they will want you to replace the whole thing and the quote will be atleast 15-20k. FWIW, I got the silencer (Muffler) changed in Chennai from a Bosch service centre here, they charged Rs 1800 for it - not OEM but seems to serve the purpose. They were mentioning that it is difficult to do welding on the muffler part so had to replace it, if its the center pipe they will first try to weld and if not replace.

@Partha thanks , Got this done at a local gas welding shop . Total damage Rs. 600/- . The silencer is quite old , it's 7.5 years . The next time will have to go for a new one , probably a free flow one.
