Further Manufacturing date is 31.03.2010 but month AY resembles Feb 2010. Is it correct?

MAJBXXMRTBAS82744 = Manufacturing date is 04.04.2010 with Euro IV emission standard.

Second point is correct. Check the RC and it will be mentioned as Feb 2010 manufactured. Manufacturing date may differ in some cases.

Also in the other VIN its mentioned as AS = March 2010 and manufacturing date is 4.4.10. you can check you RC , what its saying ?

Hi Wildon,
I was going thro the original invoice of my Palio SDX. Got some info which might be of some interest here. Exact description given is:

"Product Code: (F100171886089A816) - 17188F051 - Palio 5 door hatchback - Right hand drive, Rear safety belt Coloured bumpers, 1248CC Bharat3 diesel engine, 5speed transmission, 5 (165/80 SR13) tyres, 816 - Body finished in Infinity Black colour, 89A4B - Factory fitted AC & Power steering......"

Does the product code give more info in addition to the VIN?
Do you think '816' is the body colour code?

@Chevelle

The VIN Sticker can be found at the rear left quarter glass and the complete Chassis Number with Month code can be found on the floor under the drivers seat. for more refer page 46 (Finding the VIN & manufacturing date/year on Indian cars) of this thread.
