Angry santro front underbody damage due mumbai roads

hi,
our santro had two severe bangs on the oshiwara road in mumbai yesterday, today when i had a look under the car, the front beam has cracked and the weld has openned up. what to do?
can i claim insurance for bad roads caused damage. why should i leave with this in india????????? let the insurance company claim from government
Hyundai guys have said to replace front cross beam, cost expected to be 20k.
any advice on repairing this. i can also find corossion on the beam.

Hi,

Can only advise you after seeing either pics of the damage or see the car in person.
