Thanks everyone for the replies!

Tanveer: The Belt screaming is normally in the mornings or after long "rest" times only. However, I get a feeling that a tic-tic sound from the belt is persistent. I went to a local guy who greased the belt. It stays Ok for couple of hours and then the same problem.

Also, there is a LOT of smoke in the morning when I start.

The lot of smoke issue is because you get a delayed start and first you are spewing out partially burnt fuel.
As for greasing the belt, I suggest you stay away from the local guy. Greasing the belt will take care of screeching sound but will make your belt slip even more!
Belt slipping will not cause a tic tic sound, unless the belt is frayed.

I think I'll go in for changing the belt and glow plugs. Any idea what the belt is called? Also, any good brands for belt and glow plugs?

Change belt only if its damaged.
Normally the belt lasts around 40K kms. When was the last time the belt was changed in your case?
For Glow plugs, try to source MICO-Bosch plugs. The Behru ones which TASC puts in have never lasted me beyond 25K kms.

I have a problem with the right rear window. It rattles everytime I hit a pothole. I've even had it fixed twice but the problem resurfaces after a few months and is really irritating.

What would be a good place to have this fixed ? Or is it possible to do it myself ?

Behru?!! Lol... I think you guys are referring to Behr India. I do not know the make of the glow plugs but otherwise Tata sources a lot many components from them.

Behr is a german multinational and is a OEM for world reknowned brands. Behr's India venture also exports to the Behr's international clientele. In India they also supply to Volvo, MAN and many other such reputed names.

So Behr is certainly no pushover... At least not enough to be called Behru

Maybe the sound is coming from a bearing that is running dry. Do have it investigated before it strands you somewhere.

Bearings make a humming noise.
Alternator bearing is lubricated by engine oil, so if it runs dry your engine will seize first.
As for other problematic bearings, apart from the wheel ones, its the Subros compressor bearing. When that goes overhaul costs 7500rs and it works for just 20-30K kms atmost.
Its better to get a new compressor which costs 9.5K in the open market
As for belt noise(AC, PS, Alternator have a common belt) do not get it fully tightened. It will take care of noise completely but kill the alternator bearing.
